Book about Bain killings withdrawn

A new book about the Bain murders has been withdrawn from sale from a Dunedin bookstore.

Michael Sharp, of Palmerston North, wrote and self-published The Bain Killings Whodunnit?, which was being sold by the University Book Shop and online.

His 200-page book was withdrawn from sale this week, after he received an email from manager Phillippa Duffy.

''Due to concerns over legal aspects of your book, I have withdrawn them from sale and am awaiting legal advice,'' she said.

Ms Duffy could not be reached for comment yesterday.
