Overview

A LOVING FAMILY

Neil seemed like a dream come true for Rachel: a handsome, impeccably mannered, success-oriented Englishman, the fairytale husband she had dreamed of meeting. By the time Neil and Rachel Entwistle were husband and wife, living the good life in a New England town, it was too late to guess the truth: that beneath Neil’s good looks and manners was a deceit and darkness…

A COLD-BLOODED CRIME

On a winter day in 2006, police came to the Entwistle home and found the decomposing bodies of twenty-seven-year-old Rachel and their nine-month old daughter Lillian Rose. Rachel had been shot in the head. Lillian in the stomach. And Neil was gone. Soon, authorities would begin a desperate search that would take them across the Atlantic to find Neil…and bring him to trial.

    No ending!!

    I liked the book to start with. It was written well and interesting, but there was no ending. I had to go online to search for what happened with the verdict. The book was published before the end of the trial. From what I read on the internet, there were some interesting things that happened after the trial that should have been included in the book. I wouldn't recommend anyone buy this book. It was a good book with a big let-down in the end. I don't know why the author didn't wait to publish so it could have been complete.

    Keep your Monday!

    This is probably the worse true crime book I have ever read and I have read quite a few. It ended very abruptly and would go off on details about all of these other cases that happened in Boston. Horrible book! Keep your money.

    Not worth a dime...

    Talk about glossing and skimming over the details! This book was so void of any real information about the Entwistle case I can't believe the author managed to get 100+ pages out of it! Especially considering the book was written before Neil Entwistle even went on trial! Well, I won't tell you the verdict of the trial, you can find that out online, but I can tell you the verdict of this book is GUILTY - guilty of being a waste of my money.

    First part of book great, second part not so much

    I thought the first part was great, up until he was arrested in England. To get the full story the author should have included the trial. In a hearing it was stated by the police that the baby had been beaten in the face and head area and that there was bruising. Is this the normal coloring of death or was it actually bruising? If the author would have waited to publish the book until after the trial and include the trial, I think that question and many others would have been answered. It would have been nice to hear from the Medical Examiner who performed the autopsies and all the other evidence. In my opinion this book was not finished. It is really to bad that Ann Rule did not do this story, she would have waited until the verdict was in before she would have written the book, thus giving the readers the whole story.

    Chilling

    This was a good, fast-paced true crime thriller that catches and keeps your attention. The only thing I didn't like was that McPhee did not wait until the trial was over. The book just sort of abruptly ends...

    Worst book I've ever read, there were maybe 30 pages about the case and the author went off on a tangent about
    a million other cases. Don't Buy. Waste of money

    Fast reading and recommended for true crime readers

    It is very hard to think that a loving husband could possibly kill his wife and 9mth old infant. Once you start reading this book you will not be able to put it down. It is very fast reading and well written. He deserves to be where he is and never released. This crime is definitely one of the most horrific crimes to a family. It shows the heartless emotion and non-caring feelings of a human being.
