Lambs to the Slaughter by Debi Marshall Lambs to the Slaughter, Paperback (September 2009)

In this definitive, graphically chilling account of child killer Derek Ernest Percy's life, the author conducts a forensic examination of the crimes, the man and his modus operandi.

Devil's Garden by Debi Marshall Devil's Garden, Paperback (June 2007)

The State of Western Australia was in shock. Claremont is a salubrious suburb of Perth. Three lovely young women disappearing from relatively safe streets without a trace was very disturbing. The author looks critically at the police investigations and 16 other disappearances in Western Australia.
