If people would have conacted child protective services or reported what they had seen to the police so many lives could have been saved. His 'House of Horrors' at 25 Cromwell Street, Gloucester, became a burial ground for the women who fell into his hands. This is a must-have for anyone interested in true crime stories and offers a comprehensive introduction to Fred and Rose West. Morgan has previously spoken about how an experience in her 20s, when she was offered a lift by the Wests, eventually resulted in the novel.

West turned Ann Marie into a prostitute when she was twelve and Fred impregnated her two years later. Rose carried the sole key to this room around her neck, [82] and Fred installed a separate doorbell to the household which Rose's clients were instructed to ring whenever they visited the household. To escape Fred's domestic abuse and increasingly sadistic sexual demands, Rena phoned McLachlan, begging him to rescue her, McNeill and her children.

Rose occasionally sexually abused Anna Marie herself, and later took extreme gratification in degrading her with acts such as binding Anna Marie to various items of furniture before encouraging Fred to rape her, and forcing her to perform household chores while wearing sexual devices and a mini-skirt. It is likely she informed Fred of the plan, [39] as he arrived at the meeting time, and McFall was "oddly calm" as she informed McNeill she intended to remain with Fred to work as the children's nanny. So I found it apropos that this superb recounting of the killer couple, Fred West and Rose Leets West, their crimes and personalities, history and ancestry, be published this week (March 14, 2017 release). I found myself needing to take breaks from it with how in detail it was and the crimes they committed.

Being provided with Fred's Midland Road address, Rena sought to confront him—likely to discuss or demand custody of her daughters. The ceremony took place at Gloucester Register Office, with Fred incorrectly describing himself upon the marriage certificate as a bachelor. It was an extreamley interesting book, I really enjoyed listening to it, This is the kind of book I like, a book I can take something away from, or learn something from. He aggressively pestered women and girls, whom he objectified as sources of pleasure to be used as he saw fit, and would abruptly approach and fondle them.

When her body was discovered, a short length of metal tubing was found with her remains, leaving an equal possibility she had been restrained and subjected to a sexual assault prior to her murder.

To me this doesn’t take into account that his father and brother John are alleged to have shown similar sexual tendencies. One of the more baffling aspects to this story is that after the Wests had gotten off very lightly for kidnapping, raping and nearly killing one young woman in the area, not a single thought or visit seems to have been given by the same police force that maybe the Wests might at least be worth a visit after a growing number of young women from a similar background had suddenly gone missing? His style of "gambling" through a paragraph and then pausing was extremely annoying, and it was only the quality of the story that made me continue. If you’re interested in true crime, then you’ve no doubt heard of the notorious couple Fred and Rose West. I am honestly incensed at the people who refused to believe the child abuse suffered by the kids because 'Fred was such a nice guy'.Fred became re-acquainted with Catherine (Rena) Bernadette Costello [21] in September 1962, when he was 21. On several occasions in the early days of their courtship, Rose insisted she and Fred take the girls on excursions to gather wild flowers. What was left of Fred West's eight-year-old stepdaughter was dug up from under the Wests' previous Gloucester home; his first wife and nanny were buried in open country outside the city. Sally J Morgan has won the Portico prize for her debut novel, which was inspired by her experience of being offered a lift by the serial killers Fred and Rosemary West.
