About this deal

However the end result, no matter what the real motivation behind the publication of the book was, is the publication of a truly unique insight into exactly what it was like behind the walls of 25 Cromwell Street. Their sister, Heather, was 16 when her parents murdered her after she tried to escape – then buried her in the garden.

I can't even begin to imagine what life was like for Stephen and Mae but glad to read they are starting to rebuild their lives and I hope the victims families are too! I have a vague notion of reading this book a long time ago, but it could be familiar because of the documentaries I have seen about the West family.Seller has stated it will dispatch the item within 1 working day upon receipt of cleared payment - opens in a new window or tab . Heathers story i found particularly upsetting- she tried 2 get away but so young +such bad luck having evil as parents. But their relationship together struggled, with Fred never really taking the marriage seriously despite Rena’s best efforts. In parts it's quite hard to keep up with what's going on as the statements keep jumping from one thing to another.

It takes the reader through the early stages of Fred’s obsession with sex, how his perversions developed and inevitably turned towards his own offspring. The authors also describe how the police investigation unfolded and how the Wests were eventually caught. Read more about the condition Very Good: A book that has been read and does not look new, but is in excellent condition. Indeed, when a man came to visit ‘Mandy’, the children would know that they would have to occupy themselves for a number of hours whilst their mother looked after the visitor. The book was evidently complied shortly after the death of Fred West in jail so the events are all so raw - and this shows in the interviews.The book then goes on to describe Rosemary West, the woman who became his wife and accomplice in his crimes.

Mae is very loyal to her mum but admits her childhood was unusual , very strict and she had to put up with her fathers talk of sex. Inside 25 Cromwell Street reads initially as excerpts from interviews of two of Fred and Rose West's children, later shifting into what seems to be journal entries during the trial of Rose West, followed by a comprehensive timeline of events and examples of letters written to the authors from their parents in jail. Stephen and Mae West take on a big challenge, writing about their family life from when they were small, all the way through to the trials of both Fred and Rosemary. There is an endless variety of true crime books that tell us the tales of serial killers; their backgrounds, the murders, the victims, the hunt, the capture,the trials and prosecution - or the getaway if such is the case.In conclusion, Inside 25 Cromwell Street is a book that will stay with you long after you finish reading it. A piece of advice that instigated Fred into trying it on with one of his own sisters, and subsequently finding himself answering to the police and getting kicked out of the family home. Surprisingly short on content, the book is a quick read; there is so much more that can be told about the characters of the deranged pair and life growing up in the West household.

Super interesting to read about something that happened so close to home and strange to recognise a pot of the places written about.

How they didn't throw their parents to the wolves after what they did to them I will never understand! e. Stephen and Mae West’s words) were obtained, the book’s structure, and ultimately identifies the book as part of Stephen and Mae’s ‘rehabilitation process’. They are both vile excuses for human beings, and anyone trying to justify what they did will not get a lot of sympathy in my book.I understand that both Stephen and Mae were also abused by their parents in numerous ways, and while this is utterly horrendous and disgusting, it makes me wonder why they aren't more angry and broken that they have also been hurt by their own parents. The book then concludes with a second Appendix publishing many of the letters that Fred and Rosemary West sent Stephen and Mae from prison (which makes for some surreal reading to say the least). Again, there’s much confusion and anger at what is happening, their joint struggle at accepting what is being said in court causing a vast amount of pain for Stephen and Mae. No missing or damaged pages, no creases or tears, no underlining or highlighting of text, and no writing in the margins.
