            A fresh look at the trials of David Bain, presenting a fair and objective appraisal of the facts that led to his release from prison in 2009. At 7.09 a.m. on 20 June 1994, David Bain called emergency services and reported finding his entire family of five dead. A year later he wa...s convicted of having murdered them in cold blood, with determination and cunning. He was sentenced to life in prison. However, after 12 years of public controversy, inquiries and appeals, on 10 May 2007 the Privy Council concluded that a substantial miscarriage of justice had occurred and accordingly quashed the convictions and ordered a retrial. For the first time the background to this historic decision is laid bare. This compelling new book explores why the miscarriage happened, just how substantial it actually was and why it took 12 years to right this dreadful wrong. When the evidence heard by both juries is on the table and assimilated in logical fashion as Joe Karam has done in this detailed narrative, the so-called controversy posed by the judge in his summing up - 'Who did it? David Bain? Robin Bain?' - will be put to rest once and for all.

            Burying a child is every parent's nightmare. But Marie McCourt has spent 31 years yearning to do just that. On February 9th, 1988, her 22-year-old daughter, Helen, left her office in Liverpool city centre, and began her usual commute home. But she was never seen again... Within d...ays, local pub landlord, Ian Simms was identified as her murderer; and despite Helen's body not being found, a mass of incontrovertible DNA and witness evidence at his trial twelve months later resulted in a life sentence. But Simms has refused to disclose the whereabouts of Helen's body, meaning Marie and her family have never been able to get closure. They've never had a grave at which they can pay their respects. Marie has fought for the last 30 years to find her daughter's body and to stop other families facing the same horrifying fate, recently winning the Ministry of Justice's approval for Helen's Law , characterised by the slogan: No Body No Parole , to be enacted. This is the incredible story of the crushing devastation of a mother from the loss of her daughter, a callous murderer and the indomitable strength of a woman, who would not be bowed by an outdated law.
