A brutal but fascinating tale - reads like fact but grips like a thriller. Roddy's narrative (and indeed his confession to murder) will draw you in and even have you routing for him. However, don't drop your guard, nothing is straightforward. Words like victim and monster abound but nothing is black and white - and who's story can we believe?. The only surety is that for the women there is no hope and their lot is bleak and dreadful.
