This comprehensive red jacketed hardback provides an excellent overview of all the facts that were known at the time, written in a very readable documentary style, and is illustrated with four two-page-at-a-time inserts of interesting black-and-white photographs, including school pictures of the depraved killers Ian Brady and Myra Hindley, Hindley's rarely seen grandmother, who brought her up as her own, only for her granddaughter to turn against her, and bully her when Brady moved into her home, and even a copy of Brady's birth certificate. There's a few snaps of the searches on Saddleworth Moor, which would ultimately led to the police finding the bodies of poor two children, 10 year old Lesley Ann Downey, and John Kilbride who was 12. Of course, we know now that as well as these young ones, and a seventeen year old boy who never made it on the moors, the twisted pair were responsible for the deaths of two more kids, one of whom, 12 year old Keith Bennett, has unfortunately never been found to this day. The names of Reade and Bennett are touched upon early in the book, with details regarding their disappearances, and the subsequent fruitless police searches for them.Read more ›
