A short film about Serial Killing

1 Mins read

asfaskThis novel is based on the terrible case of Rose and Fred West, who carried out a series of atrocities in and around their Gloucester home, stretching over two decades. Eddie and Ruth Webb are the fictional counterparts. Eddie – like Fred – is already dead by his own hand, and Ruth faces justice in court. The story is cleverly told through the eyes of a veteran policeman who worked on the case, a young documentary filmmaker and, most crucially, the Webbs’ surviving children. This is a terrifying and stunning read, which grips from the first page. Read our full review here.
