Updated with the latest twists in this notorious true-crime saga, Babes in the Wood by Graham Bartlett wit Peter Jame is both a gripping police procedural and an insight into the motivations of a truly evil man – Russell Bishop. It is the definitive account of a thirty-two year quest for justice.

On 9 October 1986, nine-year-olds Nicola Fellows and Karen Hadaway went out to play on their Brighton estate. They would never return home; their bodies discovered the next day concealed in a local park. This devastating crime rocked the country.

With unique access to the officers charged with catching the killer, former senior detective Graham Bartlett and bestselling author Peter James tell the compelling inside story of the investigation as the net tightens around local man Russell Bishop. The trial that follows is one of the most infamous in the history of Brighton policing – a shock result sees Bishop walk free.

Three years later, Graham is working in Brighton CID when a seven-year-old girl is abducted and left to die. She survives . . . and Bishop’s name comes up as a suspect. Is history repeating itself? Can the police put him away this time, and will he ever be made to answer for his past horrendous crimes?

‘An extremely well-written and detailed account’ – Adam Hibbert, former head of Surrey and Sussex Major Crime Team

‘A triumph . . . Babes in the Wood should be required reading for all budding detectives’ – Malcolm Bacon, former DI
