The Search for Anne Perry by Joanne Drayton

This biography of celebrated crime writer, Anne Perry, reveals more than her identity as notorious New Zealand teenage killer, Juliet Hulme.

Hulme was jointly convicted of murdering her friend Pauline Parker’s mother in 1954, before sliding into obscurity. Through meticulous research into her life and her literature, Joanne Drayton has peeled back the layers of Anne’s carefully constructed existence to show us the woman underneath. Drayton explores Anne’s writing to uncover her world view and her compulsion to write.

This is a compelling and absorbing read which will be enjoyed by those who like biographies. Posted by Jenny, Havelock North Library
