Little Girls Lost tells the heartbreaking stories of the murders of four girls. But it also gives a groundbreaking account of how the girls' grieving parents brought about changes in the law to ease the unbearable burden for themselves - and for the families of other homicide victims. The author provides an intimate insight into the thoughts and actions of the victims' families as they recall the events leading up to - including -and after the murders. Not happy with the law as it stood - seemingly more in favour of murderers than their victims - each of the children's families successfully took the government to task and brought about historic legislative changes such as the Child Sex Offenders' Reigster, the CRIMTRACK database, DNA database for previous offenders, automatic victims' compensation and counselling, life sentences legislation, victim impact statements, pre-trial disclosure, and the foundation of the Homicide Victim's Support Gorup
