Blood Ties When The Bonds Of Family Love And Trust Are Betrayed By Murder from the Author: John Suter Linton. Chilling accounts of crimes where the victim knew their killer intimately - when husband kills wife, parent kills child, child kills parents or siblings - and a powerful insight into what compels a loved one to commit murder In Australia an astonishing 80% of homicides are committed by someone related to the victim or within their close family circle. But why do people kill those close to them, and how do these killings affect the family circle - beyond normal trauma and grief? What causes a father or mother to turn on their children, a husband or wife to end the life of someone they once loved? In Blood ties, renowned true crime author John Suter Linton tackles the subject of domestic murders, why they happen, how they happen and the long legacy they leave. through high-profile cases such as that of Mark Galante, who was convicted of killing his wife, Jody, and of Arthur Freeman, who threw his small daughter off a bridge, Suter Linton examines the stories behind the headlines. He talks to survivors, providing a fascinating glimpse into the ties which bind - and sometimes destroy us.

Detective Peter Fox painstakingly sifted all the meagre forensic evidence, and eventually came up with a prime suspect. The problem was that the case was almost entirely circumstantial. In the face of scepticism from colleagues and reluctant witnesses, Fox set about trying to prove his case against all the odds."--Provided by publisher.

Clues left at the crime scenes point to someone from the old neighborhood, and that isn’t good.

Those relationships have forced Frankie to make many tough decisions, but now he faces the toughest one of his life; he has five murders to solve and one of those two friends is responsible. If Frankie lets him go, he breaks the oath he took as a cop and risks losing his job. But if he tries to bring him in, he breaks the oath he kept for twenty-five years—and risks losing his life. In the neighborhood where Frankie Donovan grew up, you never broke an oath.
