Fifteen-year-old Lynda Mann's savagely raped and strangled body is found along a shady footpath near the English village of Narborough. Though a massive 150-man dragnet is launched, the case remains unsolved.
Three years later the killer strikes again, raping and strangling teenager Dawn Ashforth only a stone's throw from where Lynda was so brutally murdered. But it will take four years, a scientific breakthrough, the largest manhunt in British crime annals, and the blooding of more than 4,000 men before the real killer is found.

Ruined by an atrocious narrator
- Sandra Barber
Excellent book and very accurate accurate but
Yes - it is a true account of what happened during the investigation into the deaths of two young teenage girls in the village where I live. All of the residents of the three small villages were affected and the men had to give blood for their dna to prove that they were not the murderer
The arrest of murderer Colin Pitchfork
Derek Pearce - but as with every one of the people involved, the accents were wrong and 'not English'
This is the true account of how DNA profiling caught the killer of two schoolgirls in a small village in Leicestershire. It really is an excellent book but it is narrated by an American who pronounces so many things wrong and gets totally wrong accents and dialects. This book is still well worth listening to
