More than almost any recent crime, the killing of two-year-old James Bulger shocked and horrified all those who witnessed its unfolding on security camera footage. The discovery that the killers were but boys themselves forced a national (and international) self-examination: what kind of society could breed such a monstrous act? Reporter Mark Thomas tells the story of this unthinkable crime and its aftermath. He asks the questions: How did it happen? and How can we make sure it will never happen again? Based on exclusive interviews with the Bulger family and many others involved with the case, Mark Thomas writes a sensitive and thought-provoking account of one of the most heartbreaking tragedies of recent memory.
