This is a factional story, based on true events. It relates to an unsolved Murder/Mystery in the West End of Glasgow, Scotland.

Mary Mullen was an only and lonely child. Born and brought up in the West end of Glasgow Scotland. Mary's mother died when Mary was five years old. Her father was a Merchant Seaman and a staunch Catholic. Mary's upbringing was left to her two Aunts who believed she was a spawn of the devil, due to her rebellious nature.

Mary was born in nineteen twenty six. She married in nineteen forty five and had eleven children. Six to her husband Joe and five to her first love Peter. Her father thought that when she got married she would settle down.

Not Mary. Mary would not conform to what society expected of her as a married woman. Mary wanted to be treated as an equal to her husband. Her rebellious character became even stronger than when she was a teenager. Mary harboured a dark secret that she spoke of to her closest friend Isa. Isa as promised to Mary, kept this secret until after Mary's death

Mary met an untimely death. Despite her misfortunes in life,
people that knew her always saw her as a cheery chirpy character.

The detectives investigating her death could not understand who would want to kill her.

Or why?

Was it matricide or just a simple twist of fate?
