I'd heard of Lucie naturally. But didn't really know the story behind her sad death. This book gives incredible detail about her murder and that of her assailants other victims. a truly evil individual.

Instantly one of my favourite books and my favourite in the true crime genre. I bought the book on Thursday and finished it by Sunday afternoon. It's one of those books that is impossible to put down and complemented by great narration. It's also the saddest and most personal account of a disappearance and murder I've ever come across. Parry tells the story in a way that will knock the wind out of you at every turn. He brings Lucy and her family out of the newspaper columns and into a horrifying grim reality in a way that not many writers can.
Parry is very intimate in his coverage of the people involved, this is where the best part of the book is. Not like most true crime books which simply process through the background, murder and investigation, but in showing everyone involved in a way that makes them very real. You will relate with their real suffering, conflicts and faults in their search and bereavement. You will feel pain for Lucy and her family as you enter their shattered world and learn about their tragic story in a depth that leaves no question unanswered. Not for the faint of heart.
