Such a harrowing, tragic story for these two families, surely the church and pastors , elders and other church members .just feel some responsibility for not speaking out sooner as quite a few of them obviously had doubts. While feeling sorry for Hazel Stewart's children I cannot believe they feel she is innocent I can only think that such a devious , manipulative individual has successfully pulled the wool over their eyes , have they no compassion for the young man who fathered them whose wife stood by while he was brutally murdered. Colin Howell is an evil, manipulative person who committed murder to achieve his own desires ably assisted by Hazel Stewart . My mother was often heard to say God made them and the Devil matched them .I cannot think of another pair this could more a accurately describe

Made very interesting reading as it explained the religious background clearly and how people can justify their actions according to their feelings, however heinous the crime. A very satisfactory read.

Amazing story. Purchased this after seeing the telly programme. This book goes into the story in considerable depth, brilliantly written, researched. Can only imagine the heart ache for the families left behind.

Very tragic circumstances but well written. This book absorbs you with the unbelieveable content that allows human nature to perform evil acts and then live normally until finally the guilt catches up with them. Would highly recommend to all those who like reading about crime, in particular true crime

It was interesting to read this after seeing the television dramatisation as it went into detail of the trial. However, a bit too much detail about some of people on the periphery.

Not a novel as such but a true life story written in a journalistic style. It tells you the crime right at the start but the events are still gripping.
