"The Blood on My Hands is a powerful, dark memoir... This is a story that is going to remain in my mind for a long time." - 4 Stars, Readers' Favorite
"The work is crisp and painfully honest, moving from scene to scene both artfully and factually. Both the mundane and the impossible are treated with equal care, masterfully knitting together the various pieces of O'Leary's tormented past." - 5 Stars, Red City Review
"An amazing story of pure strength and survival. So hard to believe that people can come through this sort of abuse and live to write about it. I hope the author has found some peace in the telling of her story." - 5 Stars, Louise Gilbert
From the Author
"I used pseudonyms in the book order to protect my family. He was never charged despite the police knowing about his activity. The police investigations were case files and are not available to the public. People outside Australia would not be aware that many of the missing person files in NSW in the 1960s and 70s disappeared under one of the governments of the time (there are only about 6 files for the 1960s)," says O'Leary.

One disappointing thing--I never figured out what the white thing on the front cover of the book is. I can make an educated guess, but there was no reference in the book that confirmed or denied it.
