Riassunto: Swinging from a meat-hook, his entire skin was in one piece including his hair, face, ears, nose, mouth and genitals. Slashes and stab holes tore through the human pelt, a testimony to the wounds he suffered before dying. Cruel and evil, Katherine Knight showed no mercy when she butchered her de facto in a crime that put her behind bars in an Australian prison for a record life sentence. Beyond Bad is the shocking true story of Knight and her crimes - the ritual slaying and skinning of her de facto for a cannibal feast. Knight, a 44-year-old abattoir worker, stabbed father-of-three John Price 37 times, skinned his body, cooked his head, and served him up as a meal for his children. Drawing on first-hand accounts, Beyond Bad tells what motivated Knight to commit such a heinous act and how it rocked the small town she lived in. This is a horrifying story of love, lust, revenge and murder - all the more shocking because it really happened in Australia.
Dall'audiolibro: Katherine Knight's story is not unlike the vengeance served up in Shakespeare's TITUS ANDRONICUS. Knight, Australia's first woman sentenced to life without parole, slaughtered her live-in lover by stabbing him 37 times. Then the abattoir worker skinned, decapitated, and cooked his remains in a stew intended for his children. As a means to foreshadow Knight's penchant for violence, Sandra Lee's account spends a great deal of time--considerably more than necessary--describing the slaughter and subsequent dressing of the animals turned out by Aberdeen's abattoir. Given the horrific nature of the material, Kate Hood narrates with the dispassionate charge of a reporter doing her job as objectively as possible. This is a book for those who prefer their true crime bloody, gruesome, and nauseating. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
