Erased: Missing Women, Murdered Wives

by Marilee Strong and Mark Powelson
£22.99   hardback  John Wiley and Son (2008)

Erased: Missing Women, Murdered Wives by Marilee Strong and Mark Powelson Based on five years of investigative reporting and research into forensic psychology and criminology, Erased presents an original profile of a widespread and previously unrecognized type of murder: not a 'hot-blooded', spur-of-the-moment crime of passion, as domestic homicide is commonly viewed, but a cold-blooded, carefully planned and methodically executed form of 'erasure'.
 
These crimes are often committed by men with no criminal record or history of violence whatsoever, men leading functional and often successful lives until the moment they kill the women, and sometimes children, they claimed to love. A surprising number go on to kill a second or even third wife or girlfriend, often in exactly the same way.
 
In more than fifty chilling case studies, Marilee Strong examines the strange and complex psychology that drives these killers - from the murder a century ago that inspired the novel An American Tragedy to Scott Peterson, Mark Hacking, Jeffrey MacDonald, Ira Einhorn, Charles Stuart, Robert Durst, Michael White, Barton Corbin, and many others.
 
Erased also looks at how these men manipulate the legal system and exploit loopholes in missing persons procedures and death investigation, exposing how easy it can be to get away with murder.
