Author Tom Wood discusses his book The World’s End Murders. 

Tom was one of the original investigators in the case and offers his unique insight.

This book tells the true story of the heartbreaking fates of Helen Scott and Christine Eadie on the night of October 1977, the history of events leading up to the tragedy, the unyielding efforts of law enforcement, the progression of forensic science and changes in the law, all which finally brought the perpetrator to trial, not once, but twice, to finally see due process for his crimes.
