On the 6th October 1974, a crime of most heinous proportions was committed. It would become one of the most baffling and infamous unsolved crimes in Australian history. Two female trainee nurses, hitchhiking from Brisbane to the inland township of Goondiwindi on the Queensland-New South Wales border, were to disappear forever. Twenty-one months later their skeletal remains would be discovered in the bush at Murphys Creek, situated at the foothills of the Toowoomba ranges. They had both been hogtied, raped and bludgeoned to death. In April 2013 and thirty-nine years after their murders, a six day Coronial Inquest into their deaths had commenced. Over thirty witnesses, including three persons of interest, would be subpoenaed to give evidence. The Inquest would create immense publicity and shine a spotlight upon the dark underbelly of Toowoomba’s past. The author is the brother of one of those murdered girls. He has documented his quest to discover the truth of what happened to his sister and her friend in his previous book, The Echo of Silent Screams. It set the wheels in motion for this last investigation. This is his ongoing personal story to pursue justice for his sister, Lorraine Wilson, and her friend, Wendy Evans. The $250,000 reward is still current.

The specter of the marauding serial killer has become a relatively common feature on the American landscape. Reactions to these modern-day monsters range from revulsion to morbid fascination--fascination that is either fed by, or a product of, the saturation coverage provided by print and broadcast media, along with a dizzying array of books, documentary films, websites, and "Movies of the Week." The prevalence in Western culture of images of serial killers (and mass murderers) has created in the public mind a consensus view of what a serial killer is. Most people are aware, to some degree, of the classic serial killer 'profile.' But what if there is a much different 'profile'--one that has not received much media attention? In Programmed to Kill, acclaimed and always controversial author David McGowan takes a fresh look at the lives of many of America's most notorious accused murderers, focusing on the largely hidden patterns that suggest that there may be more to the average serial killer story than meets the eye. Think you know everything there is to know about serial killers? Or is it possible that sometimes what everyone 'knows' to be true isn't really true at all?

A sinister plot by a young woman left her mother dead and her father riddled with bullets. From the outside looking in, Jennifer Pan seemed like a model daughter living a perfect life. The ideal child, the one her immigrant parents saw, was studying to become a pharmacist at the University of Toronto. But there was a dark, deceptive side to the angelic young woman. In reality, Jennifer spent her days in the arms of her high school sweetheart, Daniel. In an attempt to lead the life she dreamed of, she would do almost anything: lie about her whereabouts, forge school documents, and invent fake jobs and a fictitious apartment. For many years she led this double life. But when her father discovered her web of lies, his ultimatum was severe. And so, too, was her revenge: a plan that culminated in cold-blooded murder. And it almost worked, except for one bad shot. The story of Jennifer Pan is one of all-consuming love and devious betrayal that led to a cold-hearted plan hatched by a group of youths who thought they could pull off the perfect crime.
