While the subject matter was horrifying, the author's style made the difference in this book about parents killing children. It's a sad commentary on our society that there would be so many of these cases to document. Included in this book are stories about:
I gave the book four stars because it was a humane treatment of appalling circumstances.

“Parents Who Killed Their Children” by R.J. Parker takes that horrific desire to know, to understand, and condenses it into an easy read format. 10 of the most history grabbing cases in recent years are highlighted in every gory detail, both what was in the press and further information that might have come out after the cases. In one or two the guilt is still suspect, but Parker takes no sides – the cases are presented as is, take them as you will.
This is an incredibly hard book to read, though one that you can’t help but pick up. As a parent myself, there were numerous times I swallowed hard and set my Kindle down, horrified and sick to my stomach at the thought that anyone…much less a mother… could commit such a crime against her own offspring. I do not want to like this book, the content is disturbing and realizing the truth of it even more so. That said, the writing is superb and the non-judgmental tone of the pages impressive. Parker did a remarkable job compiling the research that has gone into this work, and the coverage of possible mental illness and strong correlation to Post Partum Depression admirable.
RJ Parker does a great job with this book in recounting many famous cases of this sort of thing as well as the different reasons why these acts may be carried out. Understandably, there is mental illness involved in many cases and when I read things like this I am able to relate to the pain that these people suffer and perhaps find a tiny bit of forgiveness for these unspeakable acts. A very worthwhile read.
