'1997: Princess Diana. Mother Theresa. Titanic. While disaster made headlines and the world hurtled towards the next millennium, a death almost went unnoticed in a quiet Canberra home.
'Law student Anu Singh held a "send off party" after declaring to her friends she had decided to take her own life. Afterwards, she drugged her boyfriend Joe Cinque's coffee and over the next two days injected him with lethal doses of heroin. What made the crime more shocking was that several of her party guests had known that she'd planned to take someone along for the ride. Incredibly, Singh's eventual sentencing to ten years in prison for manslaughter gave her the time to complete her Masters Degree in Criminology, exploring the causes of female crime.
'In 'Criminology', easy assumptions about guilt and innocence, and the value of life are shaken to the core. It is the chronicle of a death foretold, but not prevented. It is an erotic, arresting, adrenaline-fuelled ride into the dark blood of a killer.'
