He beginning I got very confused as one minute he s writing about one thing then he deviates off to something else then goes back to what he was originally writing about and at times I found it uite confusing I did however at times find myself feeling a little sorry for the man who died as no matter what he did in his life he didn t deserve in the horrible manner he did All the way through the book I felt sympathy for the sisters as to be honest from how the author described their upbringing and their lives they had very little if any parental guidance it appears that the father wasn t really very interested in raising his children and left that to their mother who it appears from uite early in their
childhood had an addiction to alcohol and in later life drugs had an addiction to alcohol and in later life drugs it seems that the all the children basically raised themselves and didn t really have good role models in their parents however this still doesn t excuse what Linda and Charlotte didI do feel of the two sisters that Linda suffered genuine remorse for her part
In The Murder And If the murder and if can tolerate sections of the story being repeated and some poorly written sections where he deviates from the story completely at times this is a worthwhile book to read as it shows you a side to humans that we can t always understand but in this book the author tries to show you how dominance and lack of guidance can sometimes lead to terrible conseuences At no point in the book did I have any sympathy for Kathleen the mother she left the country and left her daughters to face the conseuences of something
she instigated and I m glad the author flushed her out instigated and I m glad the author flushed her out her UK hiding place and made her stand trial for her part in the murder While the book has a lot of relevant information and covers the case well there is also a lot of unnecessary information that does not enhance the narrative in anyway It is very badly written and has some very obvious errors Some of it reads like it s uoted from direct police records instead of being interpreted and presented to the reader within context It also uses a lot of outdated terminology using slurs and referring to asylum seekers in an ignorant manner. Fe behind bars where mother and daughters were reunited in shame And he talks exclusively to the family of the victim who are now living in poverty without the financial support of their beloved Farah The Irish Scissor Sisters is the definitive account of a sickening murder that sent shockwaves through Irish socie. Very poorly written The story jumped forwards and backwards leaving me a little confused It s also repetitive in placesApart from that it was an interesting read A must for any true crime fans this as the title suggests narrates the story of the notorious Scissor sisters who murdered their mother s abusive boyfriend after him making advances to one of the two sistersA chilling account that deals

description of the clean Book is great gives you an insight of the crime and extensive descriptionsof the clean Book is great gives you an insight of the crime and extensive descriptions a true story it is shocking that this crime is not in fact just a fiction I originally read this book when it first came out and wanted to re read it as it said there was new material in the book This book centres. Using witness statements and the Mulhalls' own words Mick McCaffrey reconstructs the horrific murder in graphic detail investigating the motives of all the people involved He gets inside the minds of the women who carried out this unspeakable crime and depicts the intensive garda hunt that led to the conviction of. On the horrific death and subseuent criminal investigation into the death of a refugee who shacked up with a dublin woman and how het met his watery grave The story is very detailed so if you have a week stomach for graphic details then a good pertion of this book you might want to skip In many parts of the book i Before I read this I d never heard of this case After I
d read it I still have no idea why they were called the Scissor Sisters lolThe first few chapters were interestingread it I still have no Idea Why They Were why they were the Scissor Sisters lolThe first few chapters were interesting me because I got to read what had happened that night I do warn you do not read this while eatingThen the book started to go downhill in my eyes because most of it were repetitions It was fascinating in a way because both were pretty women and could have made out of their life but hey with such an upbringing it makes it harder Felt sorry for their dadIt was an okay read 6 out of 10 As a fan of true crime novels this was a good read and a shocking story but the writing was laugh out loud bad in places which spoiled it a little From the over simplified language to the use of Irish slang not just in uotes but in the narrative Ali was worried about his friend because he new he could be aggressive with drink on him is a typical example it can be a little distracting The balance of it was a little strange too The victim was repeatedly vilified and portrayed as a monster while the author seemed to have sympathy for the illers which was weird Make no mistake this is a story about four awful people There s a lot of conjecture too and the illers statements presented as fact Despite the bad writing it s a compelling read and I did find it hard to put down at times This was a horrific murder which rocked Ireland and shocked so many that two women could commit such a horrendous crime I will say if you don t have a strong stomach then I honestly wouldn t advise you to read this book the author has given a very graphic recount of the murder but to be honest if he had watered down what they did he wouldn t have been able to write a true account of what they did and just how grisly this crime wasNow down to the writing I only gave it a 3 star rating because at Three of the most notorious criminals in Ireland's history In this new updated edition of The Irish Scissor Sisters McCaffrey reveals how he tracked down Kathleen Mulhall and exposed her hideout in the UK forcing her to return to Ireland and face the conseuences of her appalling crime He examines the Mulhalls' li.
