Master Detective March 2016

Description

The great northern city of Manchester comes into focus this month with a new series of cases, Manchester Murder Mysteries. Susan Thomas was just nine years old when she was strangled to death in the bitter winter of 1963. Could it possibly have been the deadly duo of Ian Brady and Myra Hindley who got away with murder?
When convicted Scottish murderer Thomas Ross Young died behind bars in 2014, authorities were left with a troublesome question: was he, in fact, the killer? The sex monster’s criminal record had put him firmly in the frame for the killing of Frances Barker – but he still may not have done it. Turn to The Sex Beast Of Glasgow for the full, intriguing story.
