    Brilliant and heartwrenching Made me want to reach through the pages of the book and shake Myra Hindley by the throat and say Just tell the bloody truth.

    This book details the life of Myra Hindley, who was a felon convicted for the murders of 05 children who were subsequently buried at the Moors near Manchester in England Very dark and grisly Myra s history explains how she met Ian Brady and was charmed into the idea of committing the 05 murders What I found the most disturbing, though, was the role of the media The press, at least in the auth

    Although as grisly and as evil as the moors murders were, this book went right into Myras history and upbringing It details how she met Ian, how their relationship progressed, and the changes in her while she carried out her sentence My heart breaks for Keith Bennetts mother who never found her son, and in a way was used in Myra and Ians games whilst in prison to hold on to that last lead of co

    The title is misleading for a start I found thisto be an account for the horribleness beginning to end account of the woman of pure evil Although it made a great read, it was slightly poorly written in places andcould have been done to make sure there wasn t moments of nothing to read of any interest My heart goes out to every victim of this disgusting duo May they always be remembered.

    My first Moors Murders book, so difficult to judge, without context.Nevertheless, I found it a confused read was it about the search for Keith Bennett A study of the cod psychology of murder A piece of extended investigative journalism A biography of Myra Hindley It seemed to be all of those in places, sometimes within the span of a single page, and at the expense of a coherent and consistent read

    An odd book Good at some issues, awry with others The reliance on Brady s doctor was irritating Hmm, she had a violent upbringing This means she was violent etc as he was used to back up the most basic points We know that a strong woman met a psychotic man and the world wasn t ready for them It doesn t take a genius to work that out On Of Your Own is a far superior book.


  7. Toni Toni says:

    Poorly researched basic facts are incorrect the date f Keith Bennett s abduction is wrong, for example , though he spends much if the book quoting people telling him how fantastic he is at his job Awful, dull and really not worth spending any time or money on The day I dedicated to reading this would have been better spent reading literally anything else.

    I have read a lot about The Moors Murderers in the past Nothing ever changes with them Still both sadistic and evil Now that they are both dead, it makes you wonder if little Keith Bennet will ever be found His poor mother Whinnie, went to her grave not knowing the location of her beautiful boy I just hope his brother, Alan is able to locate him and lay him to rest Sadly since the murders took place the la

    This book goes a long way towards trying to understand the murders, and when read with the excellent One Of Your Own by Carole Ann Lee you really are as close as you will ever get to the truth very well written I really hope one day Keith Bennett is found and laid to rest.
