Currently Reading - A Compulsion to Kill, Robert Cox

Author Name: 

A book I've been trying to juggle to the top of the list for a while - this is historical true crime, written in the style of a great yarn.

From the Blurb:

The latest work from acclaimed historical author Robert Cox, A Compulsion to Kill is a dramatic chronological account of 19th-century Tasmanian serial murderers. Never before revealed in such depth, the story is the culmination of extensive research and adept craftsmanship as it probes the essence of both the crimes and the killers themselves.
