Killing for Satan by Frank Moorhouse

Killing for Satan by Frank Moorhouse

When all hell broke loose…

The six-six-Sixties was the Devil’s decade. With its heady cocktail of glamour and gore, it’s no wonder dissatisfied youths have been drawn back to those years time and time again in search of inspiration – mostly artistic, some diabolical. The dark side of that swinging decade saw the rise of Satanism in popular culture, and even as the Sixties ended in flames, the attendant black smoke formed new shapes for Satan to inhabit and still more powerful envoys to spread his word…

Following the rise of Satanism through from the Sixties to today, Frank Moorhouse examines the key cases and delves into the lives of the perpetrators, searching for the events that could have driven them to commit such horrific acts. Rather than simply criticise and condemn, Moorhouse remains open-minded as he trawls through the carnage left by some of the world’s most terrifying killers.

Frank Moorhouse is perhaps best known for winning the 2001 Miles Franklin Literary Award for his novel, Dark Palace; which together with Grand Days and Cold Light, the “Edith Trilogy” is a fictional account of the League of Nations, which trace the strange, convoluted life of a young woman who enters the world of diplomacy in the 1920s through to her involvement in the newly formed International Atomic Energy Agency after World War II.
