The monstering of Myra Hindley

Wilde, Nina2016
Books
Perhaps few people would expect a sympathetic treatment of one of the UK's most notorious serial killers. This work is written by one of the closest people to her, Nina Wilde. She not only provides new insights about one of the most talked-about women in Britain, but also invites readers to hold back the worst of their prejudices and fears as she seeks to show how the media selected Hindley as a monster and the politics at play around her subsequent captivity. She compares how things are done in some other European countries and how the UK itself routinely releases others equally bad (or possibly far worse) quietly and away from the public gaze.
