Publisher's Summary

He is 29 years old and commits his horrendous crime alone. He is an underachiever, unskilled, doesn't have a regular job and he is now a mass murderer. What made Martin Bryant go on a brutal killing spree at Port Arthur taking the lives of 35 people?

Working with a leading Australian forensic psychologist, investigative journalist Rochelle Jackson takes us deep into the minds of eight of the country's most notorious criminals: serial killer, Ivan Milat; female sex offender, Karen Ellis; serial arsonist, Peter Burgess; armed robber and escapee, Brenden Abbott; child killer, Kathleen Folbigg; murderer, Matthew Wales; and gangland warlord, Carl Williams. She probes their motivations, delves deep into their pasts and unlocks the dark side of their humanity. Inside Their Minds is a penetrating, forensic and revealing investigation of the criminal mind.

Give it a go

I enjoyed it :) very interesting, a little thought provoking. some of the cases i hadn't actually heard of which was good. I liked the variety of them too, some were on complete psychopaths and some were on normal people that just messed up big time. A good listen I think.

couldn't get past first chapter

this is quite possibly a good book but the reader kept swishing saliva around in her mouth, swallowing loud or making loud saliva noises. I'm one of those people who finds that sound a bit like fingernails on a chalkboard. so I had to stop. not sure if the recording equipment was just so sensitive it picked up on her wetting her mouth with water, but was unbearable to me unfortunately.

Just the story of what happened.

If you want a true insight into the minds, don't bother with this. The author just tells the story of what happened.

criminals chosen weren't very interesting.

i found some of the criminals written about were that interesting and their crimes werent that bad to be in a crime novel.
