Killer in a Small Town: The Ipswich Murders

This is the story of five ordinary women, from an ordinary English town, whose lives descended into drugs and prostitution, making them easy prey for one of Britain’s most prolific serial killers. It is also the story of how a small, rural police force, the Suffolk Constabulary, succeeded, under intense pressure, in catching a murderer who had killed more women in a shorter space of time than anyone else in British criminal history.
