In attending the trial of Rosemary West, and using private papers and personal interviews, the author presents a study of the sexual obession that led to the killing of 12 women and girls by Fred West. In the wake of the horrific detail that has come to light, the book looks at how and why West was driven to serial killing of the most devious kind, resulting in a chain of murders that turned 25 Cromwell Street into a mass burial ground of sexually ravaged human remains, and how an evil psychopath was able to ensnare so many in a web of unseeing complicity.
The authoritative book on the Frederick and Rosemary West case by the master of the genre.

"'Anyone reading this brilliant book will wonder whether justice was really done'" -- A.N. Wilson * Evening Standard * "'Brian Masters is a very fine writer who consistently questions the nature of justice and how it is administered'" -- Minette Walters "'By far the most interesting book on the subject...profound and illuminating'" -- Anthony Daniels * Sunday Telegraph * "'Like the author's previous books on Nilsen and Dahmer, it sets out the facts in detail, so the reader can make up his own mind. A classic of criminological literature'" -- Colin Wilson * Spectator * "'Masters has marshalled his arguments with such skill that one wonders why he is not making his fortune at the bar...another serious, compelling account of a serial killer'" -- Anthony Storr * The Sunday Times *
