Hanratty - The Inconvenient Truth by Alan Razen
Price: $0.99 USD. Words: 24,320. Language: English. Published: June 11, 2014. Categories: Nonfiction » True Crime » Murder, Nonfiction » True Crime » Kidnapping, abduction, hostage taking(4.50 from 2 reviews)
Razen applies his inimitable brand of logic to the 1961 A6 Murder case. He is highly speculative, but convincingly so, in his attempt to rationalise all of the important evidence in the light of the 2001 DNA profiling result. In essence, it manages to close the case against Hanratty to any reasonable extent. This is a relatively concise contribution – supplementary, rather than definitive.

We usually prefer to watch the surface and make an idea how things seem to us! It's disappointing much! Isn't it? For me it is. I've often asked myself just this one thing that why exactly 'we kill people to show people that killing others is bad.' Ironic much? I think it is!!
