From the disappearance of the Beaumont children to the abduction of William Tyrrell to the double murder of Karlie Pearce-Stevenson and her daughter Khandalyce, Xanthé is determined to expose the truth to maximise dignity for both deceased victims and those left behind. Xanthé talks to experts to uncover the how's and why's of tragic murders and haunting disappearances. Along the way readers will also be introduced to new forensic techniques and scientific methods that could - or did - help move the case forward. Cold Case Investigations covers mostly murders or suspected murders - such as Ashley Coulston, Mr Cruel and Ivan Milat - with the victims as the focus. Not only because, criminologically speaking, the more you can learn about your victim the more you can extrapolate about the person who killed or abducted them, but also because they deserve their stories to be told. They deserve for people to know their names. They shouldn't just be someone's victim.

Author Biography

Dr Xanthé Mallett is a forensic anthropologist, criminologist, author, television presenter and social commentator. Xanthé specialises in re-investigating cold cases, often by reaching out to the public to generate leads. She worked as a forensic anthropologist on the BBC2 series History Cold Case in 2010-2011, which involved Xanthé and other experts working to find cause of death for human remains dating from Roman times to Victorian England. She also starred in the US version of the series, which aired on National Geographic as The Decrypters. Xanthé presented the Australian series Wanted in 2013 and in 2014, presented Mothers Who Murder on Channel Ten that coincided with the release of her book of the same name.
