The scandalous debauchery of the playboy tenth Earl of Shaftesbury sent seismic shock waves through the British aristocracy. One of the richest men in the country, he abandoned his loyal wife and two sons for a depraved life of drunken orgies, cocaine and bed-hopping in the South of France. His riotous romp plumbed the depths when he divorced the mother of his children to marry a foreign prostitute, whom he treated lavishly. Within two years, however, he was planning to divorce her to install another from his stable of swingers as Countess and chatelaine of his Dorset mansion and estates. But ugly fate caught up with him. After being reported missing in November 2004, his skeletal remains were found several months later among household rubbish in what had once been a beauty spot on the ritzy French Riviera. The Countess and her psychopath brother were convicted of the premeditated murder, committed in a desperate attempt to retain the titled status and a lion's share of the inheritance before the Earl had changed his will. The full, tawdry story has never been told - until now. People privy to the Earl's darkest secrets have been tracked down and have filled in vital gaps never revealed or published before. In this meticulously researched book, the author has unearthed truths beyond the most warped imagination. This is the shocking true account of how an ancient and distinguished aristocratic family found its reputation blackened almost beyond repair.

Heather Barnett's mutilated body was discovered by her son and daughter on their return home from school in Bournemouth one November afternoon. The police quickly ascertained that the murder was premeditated and meticulously planned down to the last macabre detail: the killer had not left one single piece of DNA evidence -- even the bloody footprints from a distinct pair of trainers did not lead out of the house but ended in the front room, without any further trace. As a bizarre and sickening calling card the killer placed a lock of someone else's hair in the victim's hand. Detectives were shocked by the savagery of the murder and baffled by the apparently sadistic ritualism of the killing. Many long months of enquiries led to an eventual lead from Interpol: the parents of a missing girl in Italy had been posted a lock of hair. Could the two murders be linked and had the police just made the breakthrough they so desperately needed? In this in-depth and chilling book acclaimed crime writer Michael Litchfield investigates the full story of the killer behind these terrible murders.
