Synopsis: A series of child-murders that took place in Yorkshire in the 1960s shocked and scandalised the country. The two people responsible, Myra Hindley and Ian Brady, were tried in a sensational case and have become notorious as the human face of evil. It is a story that has captivated for forty years. Four children were murdered by Hindley and Brady, the body of one of their victims, Keith Bennett has never been found. In "The Lost Boy", Duncan Staff has produced the nearest to a definitive book on the subject we will ever read. In 1999 Duncan Staff made a documentary on the Moors murders for BBC2. In the course of producing this programme he, as a matter of course, invited Myra Hindley to put across her side of the story. Much to his surprise, she agreed. What followed was a correspondence in which Hindley spoke candidly about some aspects of her crimes. The programme aired, concluding unquestioningly with a reaffirmation of her guilt. After her death, her estate sent Duncan Myra Hindley's unpublished papers - which proved a window into the disturbed world of Hindley and Brady. Drawing on this unique resource, and combined with extensive research, the co-operation of the families of the victims, the police and expert witnesses Duncan Staff has written this authoritative investigation into these infamous crimes. "The Lost Boy" is the compelling story of some of the twentieth-century's most notorious crimes. Duncan Staff has undertaken an exhaustive, and sensitive, exploration into all aspects of these murders and their long-felt aftermath. It also presents for the first time a compelling theory about the location of the final resting place of the Moors Murderers' last victim, Keith Bennett.

From the Back Cover: The series of child murders that took place in and around Manchester in the 1960s shocked and scandalised the country. In a sensational case Myra Hindley and Ian Brady were tried and sentenced to life in prison. The horrific nature of their crimes made them two of the most reviled characters in Britain. Four children were murdered by Hindley and Brady and buried on Saddleworth Moor; the body of one of their victims, Keith Bennett, is yet to be found. With unprecedented access to Myra Hindley’s papers combined with the cooperation of the families of the victims, the police and expert witnesses, Duncan Staff has written a definitive account of these terrible events. He casts new light on the motivation for the murders, the nature of Hindley’s relationship with Brady and her life in prison. In bringing together this evidence, Staff calls for a renewed effort to find the body of Keith Bennett. The Lost Boy is a classic work of investigative journalism and the gripping story of the most notorious crimes in Britain of the last one hundred years.
