Parricide,the murder of a parent--or the more specific patricide for murder of ones father,matricide of ones mother--are ugly words for ugly acts.In America,the murder of a childs parentwas mostly unheard
of.But now,it is the child that is looked at first,regardless of its age,when one or both parents are found dead.This book talks about ten such murders,with the hows and whys behind the gossips and rumors
This book will make you look at kids differently. I was relieved to find all these kids had one thing in common, they had all been abused in some way. So it is not just your run of the mill kids killing parents. A good read.
