About this Item

Paperback. What kind of mother would have a 13yr. old boy murdered? Why would her son commit the murder for her - then become her chief accuser? Why would her husband stand by her - the woman convicted of masterminding his son's murder? On an April evening in 1980 young Chris Hobson was driven to a remote rural area, forced to dig his own grave, and while lying inside it, was shot dead. Here is the real story of the family behind the sensational headlines, and an unflinching exploration of the most savage crime any man or woman can commit - that of parent killing child. Illus. 310pp. mass market p/back. From the library of true-crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. With small notch and sl. creasing to lower covers, o/w Nr. Vg.
