1. In the first chapter, the author says Ken and Barbara fled Aberdeen for a town where no one would know about their affair, a place to start over. "They found that place in the north town of Moree and he easily found work in the local slaughterhouse with the same jovial manner..." But in the next paragraph, the author describes Ken as the prodigal son, and that while Barbara may have lost touch with most of her friends and family, "the Knights were still a presence in Moree." So this new town of Moree is now Ken's hometown. Which are we supposed to believe? The author has already majorly mislead us.
2. Now we realize the author is a flat out liar. This is not a cannibalism story.
3. The next major mistake we find is that it soon becomes very hard for the reader to distinguish Barbara and Katherine, because of the author's poor grammar. Here is an example. After pages and pages of telling us how Barbara is abused by Ken we get this paragraph: "Before long, she was rescuing injured animals and nursing them back to health in her room at home. She was fiercely defiant when Ken tried to take them away from her, to the point that she was able to make the brutal patriarch back down and let her tend to her wounded animals in peace." Actually, he is talking about Katherine here. The read becomes too confusing to follow.
4. The story feels crammed into a shorter book than it need be. There are no supporting footnotes and only casual mentions of the context. The author never informs us that story is set in Australia at all. But there is a reference to 'Australian men' 30 or so pages in. A proper true crime story goes out of its way to underscore the facts, to impress that this is real, whereas this author treats the subject like a National Inquirer Story. It could be real, but is it?
Conclusion: A riveting crime story gradually loses credibility because of the author's mistakes and - not to mention - the impossible point of view that occurs often, when no one could possibly know what happened except a dead person.
