    "The woman's cries floated down the passage and bubbled out through the front door in helpless, anguished, tortured spasms. It was a sound that echoed down the ages. The horror of mothers from any species that might ever have lived on the planet. A parent trying to deal with the impossible: the death of her young ones. It was a sound to chill the blood." A notorious killer escapes from prison. Heart-rending scenes show the kinds of trauma faced by victims of crime.
