About this book

This book is about relating the concepts of rape and murder in both senses of the term; that is the way rape and murder are linked and related and also how stories of rape and murder are related or told.

About the authors

JANE MONCKTON-SMITH is Lecturer in Criminology, University of Gloucestershire, UK. She is a former Police Officer and lectures in the areas of sexualized and fatal violence, and criminal/forensic investigation.

Reviews

'Jane Monckton-Smith's investigation into inferred relationships between rape and murder is thorough and insightful, evincing the ways in which police investigations are informed by, and impact on, media narratives about violence.' The British Journal of Criminology

'This examination into the transparent fusion of rape and murder (into one act of sexualised fatal violence) is an essential addition to contemporary literary and statistical analysis of violence against women' - Jennifer Chiotti, Journal of Sexual Aggression

'In sum, this is a complex and extremely interesting, indeed timely book given the popularity of serial killer narratives and the systematic ways in which such narratives distract public concern from the regrettable '"normality" of violence in heterosexual relationships' - Laura Hengehold, Contemporary Sociology
