He is 29 years old and commits his horrendous crime alone. He is an underachiever, unskilled, doesn't have a regular job and he is now a mass murderer. What made Martin Bryant go on a brutal killing spree at Port Arthur taking the lives of 35 people?
Working with a leading Australian forensic psychologist, investigative journalist Rochelle Jackson takes us deep into the minds of eight of the country's most notorious criminals:
* serial killer, Ivan Milat
* female sex offender, Karen Ellis
* serial arsonist, Peter Burgess
* armed robber and escapee, Brenden Abbott
* child killer, Kathleen Folbigg
* murderer, Matthew Wales
* and gangland warlord, Carl Williams.
She probes their motivations, delves deep into their pasts and unlocks the dark side of their humanity.
Inside Their Minds is a penetrating, forensic and revealing investigation of the criminal mind.
