    Howard's Happy Tale of Woe

    Howard Sounes book about the West Country's most infamous couple is an elongated, bubble gum, Daily Star gossip article. Whilst I'm sure Sounes spent a long time researching the case and fingering through the many aspects and intricacies, the book does not delve anywhere near as deep as the graves of the children the couple murdered. A glossy account of the details is, however, intensified by the awful and very humbling circumstances in which the murderous pair grew up and met, but that is by no means anything to do with the author. There is very very little discussion or investigation as to the causes of why the pair undertook their road to Hell by way of torture, rape and voyeuristic prostitution, which I find very bizarre as they are one of the most interesting and outstanding of all serial killers. The plus points of the book are that it is written in a childish journalistic format and thus is very easy to read, almost putdownable. But that is mainly due to the incomprehensible upbringing of the couple and the depth of depravity the pair sink to. Their heinous crimes are some of the worst I have read about and it is almost unbelievable that people can inflict these attocities onto fellow human beings. For pure sensationalisation and an easy introduction into the wonderful world of serial killers, this book reaches the mark. But for those who want to question a little further and have some explanations or theories as to why the necrophilliac, nymphomaniac, sadistic and self centred pair committed such crimes, best give me a ring and we'll discuss over a beer! Maybe at a pub in Gloucester!
