RÎMARU – BUTCHER OF BUCHAREST
by Mike Phillips and Stej─ârel Olaru


Out now in paperback
and as a Kindle e-book.

An inexorable accretion of detail, maintaining a firm grip on the reader's attention... a cool, uninflected narrative that allows the facts to speak for themselves to chilling effect... the customary banality of evil, but also the fashion in which that evil can flourish in a totalitarian state. It is a chilling and salutary read.
Barry Forshaw
writer and journalist -  British Crime Writing: An Encyclopedia

An almost perfect reconstruction... a huge effort of research which reconstitutes the destiny of a murderer framed in his multiple contexts – domestic, social and historical... exceptionally well conceived and very well written!
Liviu Antonesei
writer and journalist - editor of Timpul, Romania’s leading arts magazine

Rimaru - Butcher of Bucharest: An Introduction - 02 June 2012

 

"... a cool, uninflected narrative that allows the facts to speak for themselves to chilling effect. It is a chilling and salutary read."
(Barry Forshaw, writer and journalist - British Crime Writing: An Encyclopedia)

In September 1971 Ion Rîmaru stood trial for the murder of several women. The indictment accused him of committing 23 very serious offences over a period of one year from May 1970 to May 1971: murders committed in extremely aggravated circumstances. The authors, Mike Phillips and Stejarel Olaru, have had unprecedented access to police and secret police records about the case, including the testimonies of the killer and his family.

A remarkable, uneasy and illuminating story... CLICK HERE to read more about the book and to purchase a signed copy for only £6.99.
