Thank you to NetGalley for giving me the opportunity to read this book.
This book is the true life story of the brutal murder of Georgia, and her families battle for justice. It was a long battle due to police incompetence as well as the murder itself.
This story was heartbreaking, but also massively eye opening as to how the police seemed to care more about covering themselves than facing the responsibility they have to this family, and the public. I was quite disgusted at how the police treated this family, especially considering Georgia’s father was a serving member of the force. The determination this family has shown is breathtaking, and amazing. They have not faltered in their fight to try and change the future of policing, for future families that become victims of crime. This was the first time I’d heard of Georgia, and I feel a part of Georgia and her story will always stay in the back of my mind. I am sure that Georgia is proud of her family, and their fight for justice.
Such a sad and grim tale, but Georgia's parents sheer determination was inspiring. Her mother writes movingly about her early life and their joy in their family, before it was all taken away from them by a heartless, mindless killer. West Mercia Police have a lot to answer for, and the fact that Georgia's father was treated so badly by his own police force, after her death, is appalling. Heart-wrenching throughout, an essential read.
A glimpse into this family’s private horror. This was the most intensely moving, and gut wrenching account told from the most personal point of view. At times I felt great sadness and anger along with the author. The ball dropped by law enforcement time and time again leading to this tragedy is disappointing, but taking into account the relationship between the two make it so much angering. Law enforcement was more worried about how they looked and trying to covering up their mistakes, rather than taking accountability for them and being there for one of their own. This book helps to shed light on the flawed system by showing just how often victims and their families fall through the cracks. This family went through two separate traumas, losing their daughter in a horrific way and then being let down by the very system the father had given most of his life to. I did find a few points in the book drawn out and very repetitive. I am glad this story has the message of watching for red flags in other, even if they are your “friend”.
Thank you NetGalley for the E-arc.
