SUSPENSE MAGAZINE - "Parents Who Kill Their Children is a great read for aficionados of true crime. The way the author laid the cases out made the hair on the back of my neck stand up."

This collection of "Filicidal Killers" provides a gripping overview of how things can go horribly wrong in once-loving families. Parents Who Killed their Children depicts ten of the most notorious and horrific cases of homicidal parental units out of control. People like--Andrea Yates, Diane Downs, Susan Smith, and Jeffrey MacDonald--who received a great deal of media attention. The author explores the reasons; from addiction to postpartum psychosis, insanity to altruism, revenge and jealousy.

Each story is detailed with background information on the parents, the murder scenes, trials, sentencing and aftermath.

"Acclaimed true crime author, RJ Parker Ph.D., has a knack for collecting high-profile cases under specific themes. This collection about parents who kill their children provides a fast-paced, gripping overview of how things can go horribly wrong in once-loving families. From Andrea Yates to Jeffrey MacDonald to Susan Smith, Parker reports on the stunning case details and suggests reasons why the parental bond can get so twisted. The updates at the end of each chapter add a lot, since popular media rarely follows up. An important reference for true crime readers."
-- (Katherine Ramsland, Ph.D.), bestselling author of "The Mind of a Murderer" and "The Ivy League Killer."

"Is there anything more reprehensible than filicide--that is, the intended act of a parent killing his or her own child? In "Parents Who Killed Their Children," the award-winning true crime author RJ Parker shines a powerful light on this dark and sordid phenomenon. First, Parker offers a number of possible psychological and environmental causes (or at least correlates) of filicide. Then he presents ten shocking, real-life case histories of parents who murdered their children. The result is a book that is bound to make you rethink the absolute sanctity of motherhood and reflect on why some mothers do indeed "eat their young." This is a powerful read and another hard-hitting, compelling entry by RJ Parker."
-- (Scott Bonn, Ph.D), criminologist, professor and author of the forthcoming "Why We Love Serial Killers"

5.0 de 5 estrelas Parents Who Killed Their Children 6 de março de 2015

As an avid True Crime reader, each one of these stories was already familiar to me. I have read complete books written on a lot of these women who killed their children and I must say that Mr. Parker did an excellent job on condensing a lot of the information into one chapter for each story of a parent who killed their children. I can only imagine how hard that must have been, but he did a complete and excellent job of telling the reader a detailed story about each individual person who committed these awful crimes against innocent little children. Like Mr. Parker said on more than one occasion, children should be loved and cared for, not abused and murdered by those who gave him or her life! If you haven't read a previous written book on these murderers, rest assured you will get a thoroughly told story within the covers of this book.

I had just ordered this when new broke the other day of yet another parent killing his child, and grandchildren, in Florida. This sort of act disturbs me to no end and I wanted to read more about to gain understanding, and perhaps some sympathy and forgiveness.

RJ Parker does a great job with this book in recounting many famous cases of this sort of thing as well as the different reasons why these acts may be carried out. Understandably, there is mental illness involved in many cases and when I read things like this I am able to relate to the pain that these people suffer and perhaps find a tiny bit of forgiveness for these unspeakable acts. A very worthwhile read.

5.0 de 5 estrelas This is a great book on a horrible subject that will surely make you cry. 18 de setembro de 2014
Por Heather G - Publicada na Amazon.com

There is a fascination in this country, and most of the world for that matter, regarding murder. How it happens, when it happens and WHY it happens. When that homicide is in fact, filicide – or the killing of a child by his or her own parent – then that fascination takes on a morbid, yet compelling drive. We stand riveted to the TV screen and the papers, watching the stories unfold before our eyes. We are horrified, yet spellbound, unable to look away as the details and possible reasons spill forth.
“Parents Who Killed Their Children” by R.J. Parker takes that horrific desire to know, to understand, and condenses it into an easy read format. 10 of the most history grabbing cases in recent years are highlighted in every gory detail, both what was in the press and further information that might have come out after the cases. In one or two the guilt is still suspect, but Parker takes no sides – the cases are presented as is, take them as you will.
This is an incredibly hard book to read, though one that you can’t help but pick up. As a parent myself, there were numerous times I swallowed hard and set my Kindle down, horrified and sick to my stomach at the thought that anyone…much less a mother… could commit such a crime against her own offspring. I do not want to like this book, the content is disturbing and realizing the truth of it even more so. That said, the writing is superb and the non-judgmental tone of the pages impressive. Parker did a remarkable job compiling the research that has gone into this work, and the coverage of possible mental illness and strong correlation to Post Partum Depression admirable.

I just started reading this book and it is an amazing read. It is so hard to put down. It is hard to believe that there are people in this world that could do such horrible things to children. R.J.Parker is the best True Crime author's. I will one day own every book he has written. Keep up the awesome writting R.J. :)

I received a free kindle copy of Parents Who Killed Their Children: True Stories of Murder (True CRIME Library RJPP Book3) by RJ Parker in an Amazon promotion.

While the subject matter was horrifying, the author's style made the difference in this book about parents killing children. It's a sad commentary on our society that there would be so many of these cases to document. Included in this book are stories about:

Andrea Yates
Darlie Routier
Susan Eubanks
Lianne Smith
Alan Bristol
Jeffrey MacDonald
Deanna Laney
Susan Smith
Tonya Thomas
Diane Downs

I gave the book four stars because it was a humane treatment of appalling circumstances.
