    1. Disclaimer: this TV series is not based on this book but it is a good fit of the crimes and the harrowing account of a neo nazi murderer and his callous partner in crime - public revulsion for Brady and Hindley has never abated.

    2. Now out of print and unlikely to be re-published this transcript of the Moors Murders trial, only edited somewhat for ease of understanding legal argument, is an exceptional insight into the case, including as it does rare evidence of autopsies, police interviews and tiny forensic details. Brady and Hindley's testimony is in turns chilling and astonishing, Brady's no doubt compromised by his attempt to shield Hindley. How Hindley imagined she could be found not guilty of murder can't really be r [...]

    3. I'm not sure what the protocol is for reviewing a trial transcript, but anything that shuns the author's personal opinion and input gets my vote. Some quotes from the trial are quite well-known, so it's interesting to see the nitty-gritty details. However, it is not the whole transcript, and has been edited to contain only the 'significant bits.'I also find the cross-examinations quite jarring in that lines are not seperated between the question and the defendant/witness's reply. This could have [...]

    4. I've read every published work about this case, and as compelling as some have been - particularly Carol Lee's "One Of Your Own" - this one was gripping in an altogether different way. It is as though the book is a time machine, able to sit you down and bear witness to Britain's most notorious trial, as it unfolds. Knowing the outcome somehow doesn't take the edge off, especially during the very high-voltage cross-exam of Ian Brady himself. Complete with reproductions of maps, as well as handwri [...]

    5. Chilling, fantastic book about the sick relationship between Ian Brady & Myra Hindley. In the 1960s, the two of them would snatch children, take them out to the moors, where Brady (and possibly Myra) would sexually assault them & ultimately murder them. I became interested in reading this book after watching the FABULOUS movie, "Longford", starring Jim Broadbent as Lord Longford, who visited Myra Hindley (played brilliantly by Samantha Morton) in prison during the late 1960s, & ultim [...]

    6. Not very sure how you rate this one as it is not fiction - unfortunatly. It was an intersting read, albeit macabre and disturbing.
