Joan Roddam - pensioner murdered Millie Dowler - found brutally murdered, 2002. Colonel Riley Workman - shot dead outside his home, 2004. All murdered - yet their murderers are unknown and still at large...When people talk about getting away with murder, few realise that in reality one in ten murderers do. In this chilling book, bestselling author and former undercover detective Peter Bleksley examines just why so many murders go unsolved. Despite the fact that we are photographed up to 300 times a day whether we commit a crime or not and incredible advances in DNA testing, murder is more common than ever. Using his own considerable investigative powers and his unique access to police resources and contacts he looks at ten unsolved murder cases from the 21st Century to discover where the problems lie and what can be done. His findings whilst disturbing, point to glaring errors that have been made in the way we look at murder and what we can do to stop it.
