Summary
  • A little over twenty years ago the world was shocked and numbed when it learned that two ten-year-old boys had deliberately lured, tortured and murdered two-year-old James Bulger. How could this happen, the world wondered. The reality is that this was nothing new. Throughout history there have been no shortage of cases where kids have deliberately and calculatingly killed kids. Deadly Games provides a detailed look at some of the most murderous children who have ever lived, spanning throughout time and across nations. Some have killed for retribution, others simply for the thrill. The shocking and unfathomable crimes committed by young children will leave you questioning what children are actually capable of, and whether society is appropriately dealing with this ongoing horror. More than 40 strong true crime stories, mainly modern day but some reaching back as far as the 18th century. Children killing children is a controversial topic, but there is a plethora of cases where kids have deliberately killed other children for mere pleasure and experience. Inspired by the killing of young English boy Jamie Bulger, Deadly Games features stories from across the globe and including a section on American school massacres and five horrifying Australian cases.
