    1 thought on “Frenzy!: Heath, Haigh & Christie: The First Great Tabloid Murderers

    1. The three British serial killers were caught and executed after WWII 1946 1953 and although covered in the past, the book tells us that new material has been released I had no previous knowledge of the three murderers Neville Heath, John George Haig, or John Christie so Frenzy for me, was new information.I found it thought provoking that the chaos and savagery of war had desensitised people and in many ways cheapened human life Another side of war I would imagine is not even thought about by man [...]

    2. What was most interesting was the opinion that each of these men had about each other, and how closely their lives could have been involved The saddest aspect of these cases was Tim Evans, the husband of one of Cristie s victims and the father of another, a man who became a victim of Christie.
