It can take years for love to turn to murderous hate - or it can happen overnight.

What drives a man or a woman to commit the ultimate betrayal - to take the life of a parent, a child, a sibling, a lover?

BLOODY RELATIONS is an unflinching exploration of fourteen well known and not so well known murder-in-the-family cases.  Taking readers inside the life and mind of both killer and victim, John Kerr unfolds the gripping stories behind some of Australia's most sensational and shocking crimes.
