About This Item

Between pages 162 and 163 there are 12 pages of colour photography. Colour photographic paperback binding with gray and white coloured titles to the front panel and back strip. In April 2002 socialite Margaret Wales-King and her husband Paul King disappeared after having a meal with their family. 25 days later there bludgeoned bodies were found in bushland. The next shock was that Margaret Wales-King's youngest son, Matthew, was charged with their murder; and, quoting from the rear panel blurb, " ... In his confession Matthew was adamant that he wasn't after the money. He felt totally disempowered by his mother and believed he had no choice but to commit one of the most uncommon and unsettling of crimes – matricide." A little creasing of the book corners with rubbing of the book edges and panels. There is a crease that runs three quarters the length of the rear panel. Tanning of the text block edges and pages. Remnants of a sticker can be seen to the lower edge of the rear panel. Full number line. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. [6], 258 pages. Please refer to accompanying picture (s).
