Publisher's Summary

From the disappearance of the Beaumont children to the abduction of William Tyrrell to the double murder of Karlie Pearce-Stevenson and her daughter Khandalyce, Xanthé is determined to expose the truth to maximise dignity for both deceased victims and those left behind.  

Xanthé talks to experts to uncover the hows and whys of tragic murders and haunting disappearances. Along the way listeners will also be introduced to new forensic techniques and scientific methods that could - or did - help move the case forward.

Cold Case Investigations covers mostly murders or suspected murders - such as Ashley Coulston, Mr Cruel and Ivan Milat - with the victims as the focus. Not only because, criminologically speaking, the more you can learn about your victim the more you can extrapolate about the person who killed or abducted them, but also because they deserve their stories to be told. They deserve for people to know their names. They shouldn't just be someone's victim.

Excellent

Everything about this book is excellent and could not fault it in any way. The narrator's voice was amazing too.

Brilliant. On all fronts

Cleverly written, brilliantly researched and just reminds us about so many factors we gloss over, or the media want us to see. Highly recommend

Biased and shocking narrator

The book makes claims about the Beaumont Children that are unsubstantiated and goes to enormous lengths to support her failed claim that killer was particular individual. Claim that was made by mentally ill drug addict son of this deceased suspect, who is unable to defend himself. It also makes a couple if errors about the Mr Cruel case that people who know the case well will notice. It is stated that Mr Cruel attacked an "elderly" nun when a perusal of the newspaper articles that covered the crime in question reveals the woman was 48 years old.The narrator consistently pronounces Karmein Chan's first name as "Karmine" which grates throughout. How this was not picked up in the editing process is beyond me. Overall, writer comes across as unreliable.

Absolutely Brilliant

Such sad stories to hear but I thoroughly enjoyed listening to Xanthe Mallett, very well read and spoken. Could listen to her all day. I also love how she went into a lot of detail with the forensic side of things as well.

Well done

Brilliantly written and narrated. Hope more of your books become audible. In-depth analysis of criminology and psychopathology explained very well…

A good mix of true crime, criminology, forensics

A disclamer: I am a bit of a professional myself so not quite impartial. But. This book is for all who do want to learn a bit more about criminal justice, criminology, forensic science and much more. Recommended.
