The case shook the nation and has held us both horrified and fascinated for fifty years. Three of the children - Pauline Reade, John Kilbride and Lesley Ann Downey - were discovered in shallow graves on Saddleworth Moor. Edward Evans' body was found in their spare bedroom. The body of Keith Bennett has never been found. In the late nineties Myra Hindley contributed to a documentary on the murders, made by Duncan Staff. When she died in 2002 he was sent her unpublished papers. Drawing on this unique resource, and with the cooperation of the families of the victims, the police and expert witnesses, Duncan Staff is able to cast new light on the crimes, Hindley's relationship with Brady and her life in prison. And in this new edition of his bestselling book he is able to present, for the first time, compelling new evidence about the Moors murderers' system for hiding their victims' bodies.
Excerpt from The Lost Boy The Boy was the joy of the journey. His keen interest in all things seen and heard was like a refreshing spring of water to the older pilgrims, who had so Often traveled the same road that they had forgotten that it might be new every morning. His unwearying vigor and pure gladness as he leaped down the hillsides, or scrambled among the rocks far above the path, or roamed through the fields filling his hands with ﬂowers, was like a merry song that cheered the long miles of the way. He was, glad to be alive, and it made the others glad to look at him. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

As a boy living in the Dinka tribe in what is now South Sudan, the youngest country in the world, Ayik Chut Deng was a member of the Sudanese People’s Liberation Army (SPLA). During his time as a child soldier, he witnessed unspeakable violence and was regularly tortured by older boys. At age nineteen, he and his family escaped the conflict in Sudan and resettled in Toowoomba, Australia. But adjusting to his new life in small-town Queensland was more difficult than he anticipated. He was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder that was misdiagnosed as schizophrenia, leading to years of erratic behaviour on the wrong medication. He struggled with drugs and alcohol, fought with his family and found himself in trouble with the law before he came to the painful realisation that his behaviour was putting his life, as well as the lives of his loved ones, at risk. As an adult now living in Brisbane, Ayik is a father, working as an actor and volunteering at his local youth centre. Overcoming a childhood filled with torture and war was a process of lifelong learning, choices and challenges that included a remarkable chance encounter with a figure from his past, and an appearance on national television. The Lost Boy is an honest and revealing account of the complexities of trauma, and one man’s story of how he got to where he is today.
