From the recent notorious and horrific murders of Rachel O'Reilly, Dolores McCrea and Siobhan Kearney, cases are outlined as far back as the poisoning of Margaret Lehman in Dublin of the War years, for which her husband was hanged in 1945. A picture is revealed about how little has changed in this area of crime, but also about how societys attitude has changed towards it, as reflected in court verdicts and sentences. From open-and-shut cases to ones that relied on detailed forensic evidence, the book also examines the aftermath, describing courtroom scenes of high emotion as the bereaved family seek to ensure their former in-law is held accountable for the crime. In its detailed examination of Irelands most notorious wife killings from the 1940s right up to present day and the most recent returned verdict in the Siobhan Kearney case, Love You to Death charts each story from apparently normal marriages all the way to a violent ending and a legal conclusions. A chilling, gripping and at times gruesome read.
