In this True Crime book, Chris gives us the story of Peter Manuel, aka "The Beast of Birkenshaw"! Peter Manuel started his life of crime by committing petty thefts and burglaries at the young age of 9. By the time he reached his mid to late teens he started to add extremely violent acts of assaults and rape to his crime resume! He spent a short period of time in prison for some of those crimes but that seemed to do nothing for him as far as reforming him. It didn't take long after he got out that he added serial killer to his resume!
I should also add that these crimes were committed back in the 1940's and 50's when people were used to going to bed without having to lock down their house like a fortress and the term "serial killer" had not yet been coined! Making these murders all the more shocking!
In the end, Peter Manuel was credited with nine murders along with hundreds of break-ins. Despite much speculation, no motive was offered for a single one of the murders. It appears he just wanted to kill. Although Manuel suffered two devastating injuries, there was no connection made to his violent behavior afterwards.
This is a well-researched and well-written account of the life and crimes of the "Beast of Birkenshaw."
