Both gripping police procedural and an insight into the motivations of a truly evil man, Babes in the Wood by Graham Bartlett with Peter James is a fascinating account of what became a thirty-two year fight for justice.

On 9 October 1986, nine-year-olds Nicola Fellows and Karen Hadaway went out to play on their Brighton estate. They would never return home; their bodies discovered the next day concealed in a local park. This devastating crime rocked the country.

With unique access to the officers charged with catching the killer, former senior detective Graham Bartlett and bestselling author Peter James tell the compelling inside story of the investigation as the net tightens around local man Russell Bishop. The trial that follows is one of the most infamous in the history of Brighton policing – a shock result sees Bishop walk free.

Three years later, Graham is working in Brighton CID when a seven-year-old girl is abducted and left to die. She survives . . . and Bishop’s name comes up as a suspect. Is history repeating itself? Can the police put him away this time, and will he ever be made to answer for his past horrendous crimes?



Graham Bartlett is the author of the Sunday Times Top Ten Best Seller DEATH COMES KNOCKING: Policing Roy Grace’s Brighton which he wrote with internationally acclaimed crime writer Peter James. He is also a police procedural advisor to best selling crime fiction writers and TV drama makers.

REVIEW:
This is another loaner from a friend and coworker. We share a love for reading true crime. This was a story I had no familiarity with, so I was eager to learn what happened.
It was a sad story of injustice for over three decades. Those poor little girls. It was slow-paced, the writing. But the story itself, I was so mad at the police and the justice system that I had to walk away from the book a few times. I have children. I couldn't imagine what those people went through for 31 years because of this monster.
I think I need a break from true crime for a minute. It's always tough when the stories involve kids.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although

Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would
