STORY: When the police started asking questions, Jean Taylor turned into a different woman. One who enabled her and her husband to carry on, when more bad things began to happen…
But that woman’s husband died last week. And Jean doesn’t have to be her anymore.
There’s a lot Jean hasn’t said over the years about the crime her husband was suspected of committing. She was too busy being the perfect wife, standing by her man while living with the accusing glares and the anonymous harassment.
Now there’s no reason to stay quiet. There are people who want to hear her story. They want to know what it was like living with that man. She can tell them that there were secrets. There always are in a marriage.
The truth—that’s all anyone wants. But the one lesson Jean has learned in the last few years is that she can make people believe anything…
REVIEW: Glen and Jean Taylor have been married for a number of years and are childless. After trying for some time, Jean decided to be tested and Glen finally agreed as well. It turns out that Glen has a near-zero sperm count. Jean would love to adopt a child, but Glen is totally against it.
Glen works at a bank and always complains that his boss has it out for him. Jean works as a hairdresser. Glen has always been protective of Jean and insists that everything be neat and tidy. When Glen is fired from his job, he blames his boss but it appears that his anger has been increasing for some time now. Jean does all she can to keep him happy. He soon gets another job driving a delivery truck. However, Jean finds that Glen has been spending a lot of time on the computer downloading terrible porn.
When little 2-year-old, Bella goes missing from her front garden, the police and the press are all over it. People are interviewed, CCTV is checked and DI Bob Sparkes cannot let this go. Kate Waters is a reporter for the Daily Post and is good at getting people to open up.
When the finger of suspicion points to Glen, their lives become hell being hounded by the police and the press.
This story follows the investigation of Bella’s disappearance and the relentless work spanning several years that the police put into trying to find the little girl. We learn about the lives of Glen and Jean, DI Sparkes and reporter Kate Worth.
This is a fascinating story that kept me turning pages and not wanting to put the book down. The author has perfectly portrayed the life of someone who is addicted to porn. But, we don’t really know until the very end of the book if, indeed, Glen is guilty of kidnapping Bells. I have no intention of telling you either. You must read the book!
