    One thought on “"She Must Have Known": The Trial Of Rosemary West”

    1. Having this year been fascinated to read One of Your Own, detailing Myra Hindley's part in the Moors Murders, I thought this book would tread a similar path i.e. showing the female's role in a murderous couple. I assumed She Must Have Known was going to show me all the ways in which Rose West was fully aware of husband Fred's torture and murder of numerous young women at their Gloucester home. Not so. This book actually tries to reason against this viewpoint and questions how, following Fred's s [...]

    2. An interesting read, but I found that Masters was surprisingly contemptuous and cynical about many of the victims in particular Caroline, which I thought was very bad taste. I don't believe he did enough research regarding her case, for example he stated she had consensual sex with both hippie boys at Cromwell Street when in reality one was a rape. Furthermore, Masters suggests Caroline lied or exaggerated the account of what happened to her, mostly due to holding back the fifth page of her acco [...]

    3. I read some of Brian Masters' criminology books years ago, and decided to take a look at this one after watching Appropriate Adult, the ITV drama about this case. This is an interesting look at Rosemary West's trial, with Masters arguing strongly that she should have been acquitted. He is very thorough in his scope, covering all the details of the case, the personal histories of Fred and Rose West, the events of the trial, and some parallel cases. This is a book of two halves: Masters begins by [...]

    4. I have to say, Masters manages to throw quite a lot of doubt on the prosecution of Rosemary West and the testimony of many of the witnesses at her trial. He seriously calls her conviction into question. But the book's peevish, self-important tone puts me off, and some of the author's assertions are far from the indisputable truth, as he wants us to think they are. The book is peppered with statements about how this or that belief about the Wests is "preposterous," "risible" or -- conversely -- c [...]
