The shocking true crime story of child murderers Ian Brady and Myra Hindley, Great Britain's most horrific serial killers. During the early 1960s, just as Beatlemania was exploding throughout the United Kingdom, a pair of psychopathic British killers began preying on the very young, innocent, and helpless of Greater Manchester. Between 1963 and 1965, Ian Brady and his lover and partner, Myra Hindley, were responsible for the abduction, rape, torture, and murder of five young victims, ranging in age from ten to seventeen years old. The English press dubbed the grisly series of homicides "the Moors Murders," named for the desolate landscape where three of the corpses were eventually discovered. Based in part on the author's face-to-face prison interviews with the killers, Fred Harrison's fascinating and disturbing true crime masterwork digs deeply into Brady and Hindley's personal histories to examine the factors that led to their mutual attraction and their evolution into the UK's most notorious pair of human monsters. It was during these interviews that new details about the killers' terrible crimes surfaced, compelling the police to reopen what was arguably the most shocking and sensational homicide case in the annuls of twentieth-century British crime. With a new introduction by the author, meticulously researched and compellingly written, Brady and Hindley is the definitive account of Britain's most hated serial killers.… (lisätietoja)

I read a lot of true crime, particularly older crimes, and the description for this one intrigued me. It's not quite what I expected, though, and consequently was not nearly as engaging as it could have been.

I knew virtually nothing about this case before reading this book. If, like me, you know nothing about these killers or the murders, you might want to read something more informative first. The author jumps in as if all his readers are familiar with the circumstances and the people involved. I was lost throughout a good portion of the book. We're given detail on a variety of people who were friends with or acquaintances of Brady and/or Hindley, without much reference as to why (or if) they matter. At one point, I even have a note in the text on my Kindle that reads, "Who are these people?"

The author doesn't give much detail at all about the murders or the investigation. Even Brady and Hindley's relationship isn't all that clear. I still don't understand how or why an otherwise normal young woman would suddenly team up with a killer. Much of the focus here, as far as the case is concerned, is Brady's relationship with - or fixation on - a young man called David Smith, as well as David Smith's background, life, and involvement. The title and description do not reflect the actual content, since Hindley is more a third party in this respect.

We jump rather quickly into Brady and Hindley's arrest, at which time Hindley mostly disappears from our viewpoint and the author takes us through his interviews and research. Here, I thought we had too much author interference. We get the author's opinion and feelings about why and how he pursued this, about his eventual meetings with Hindley, about what he was told, and about what he did with that information. Despite the author's closeness to Hindley, I felt removed from it all, as if the author became more of the focus than Hindley himself. This part reads more like a memoir than a true crime book.

I think this would be an interesting addendum to a more thorough book covering this case. But if you know little or nothing about the murders, you still won't know much when you finish. You will, however, know a lot about a man named David Smith.

*I was provided with an ebook copy by the publisher, via NetGalley, in exchange for my honest review.* ( )
