“You can't put it down because you wouldn't sleep ,...”

Written on: 12/08/2005 by giraffe (3 reviews written)

Good Points
A fascinating read. Not too light or too heavy. You cannot put it down.

Bad Points
The stories in this book would be extreme if they were fiction, but they're not, so it is worse.

General Comments
You can't put it down because you wouldn't sleep , until you knew the people responsible for the crimes were safely behind bars.

Paul Britton has helped with most of the high-profile cases that have hit our newspapers and TV screens in the last twenty years. He doesn't glorify the cases he covers, he simply tells the story of their investigation. The police, in most cases, come out looking good. We learn very little about Paul himself, but you cannot help but realise what his job must have cost him. He mentions his faith, and I hope he holds on to it, because nothing else could make sense out of what he sees every week.

This book is like reading/watching Schindler's list. It reminds you what humans are capable of. It is educating and well written, but for the victims and their families, it is gut wrenchingly sad.
