    1. I have always been an avid reader of Carol Ann Lee s true crime books and so I was delighted to have the chance to review her latest The Murders at White House Farm, which looks at the Jeremy Bamber case The murder of Jeremy Bamber s family his adopted parents and sister, plus her two young twin sons, happened in 1985, when I was a student However, I still recall the horrific crime and the way the press, and public, turned from viewing Jeremy Bamber as a tragic figure to a possible suspect Of co [...]


    2. The Bamber case has long fascinated me fascinated a lot of people, one of those things most hold a solid opinion about With this account, Carol Ann Lee brings together all the background, the people, the place, the investigation and gives an in depth overview of the events and those caught up in them.This book is a terrific resource if you want the facts without the drama, the author has taken great pains to gain a great insight into the background of all the players, tracing the family history [...]


    3. It is an extremely in depth book that looks at every different side event possible The only problem is that the book is TOO in depth to the point that half of the facts aren t particularly relevant to the murders at White House Farm The book could easily be shortened down to half the length.


    4. Those who have read this author s previous books about the Moors Murders and about Ruth Ellis will know what to expect from this one and they will not be disappointed The Bambers Nevill, June, daughter Sheila and her twin sons, Nicholas and Daniel were murdered at White House Farm in Essex in August 1985 Jeremy Bamber son of Nevill and June is in prison for their murders though he has always maintained his innocence.The author unravels the family history in a low key unemotional way and explains [...]


    5. I m not qualified to pronounce on the rights and wrongs of this case, but I can pronounce on the literary qualities of the book and for me it failed on many aspects For a start it s just too detailed A case can be made for going into detail about the main protagonists but we don t need to know all about their friends, acquaintances and colleagues It all gets far too bogged down in the minutiae which slows the narrative Then there s far too much reconstructed dialogue, making it all feel like a b [...]


    6. An excellent account of a gruesome murder The author does an excellent job of being objective and not sensationalizing the story, instead she lets the narrative flow leaving a fluid gripping account



    7. Before reading this I only had a sketchy idea of the events of 7th August 1985 at White House Farm I knew that on that night a whole family had been brutally murdered father, mother, daughter and her two young children I knew that a young man, Jeremy Bamber, the son of the elderly couple who owned the farm, was eventually tried for the murder, convicted, and has been protesting his innocence ever since It was one of those notorious cases that resonate, like the Moors Murders and that of the York [...]


    8. Here in the United States, we ve become almost numb to the amount of murders both of family members and strangers that seem to occur with great regularity In the UK, I think they re a bit shocked by murders and murder suicides One in particular that gained a lot of press was the murder of a husband wife daughter twin sons at White House Farm in Essex in August, 1985 A recent book, The Murders at White House Farm , by Carol Ann Lee, takes a close examination of the murder and the trial, and the [...]


    9. This was a really good book but certainly didn t steer me away from my view that he did it All that playacting at his parents funerals I ve never, ever forgotten The fact he tried to put the blame on Sheila, his unstable sister and the fact he also murdered her sons is despicable He always had everything he ever wanted, being a spoilt rich boy Seems so many parents give their kids way too much and oftentimes this happensey always feel they deserve .It was shocking to revisit the headlines of the [...]


    10. review by ireadnovels.wordpressA true storyI don t read many true crime books, but this one caught my attention Sheila s dream was to be a successful model, but her career stalled shortly before the twins were born and she never really recovered despite her attempts to restart it When Collin and Sheila s marriage ended they shared custody of the twins, Nicholas and Daniel, and they remained on terms Collin became their primary carer after Sheila s second breakdown in March 1985 Before the murder [...]


    11. I have just finished reading this amazing book and from the moment I started it, it grabbed me and pulled me along through the gripping account of the Bamber family, shot dead in their home 25 years ago.This case is the ultimate whodunit For anyone who remembers the crime, they will know that Jeremy Bamber who was convicted of the murders, still claims he is innocent and blames the murders on his mad sister Shelia going crazy with a gun For this reason the case continues to crop up in the tabloi [...]


    12. This was quite good Interesting and impartial, which is good, I tend to avoid most true crime books mainly because they always seem to lack impartiality The murders occurred not far from where I live and I was curious after visiting a wedding venue that was apparently owned by a branch of the family Maybe a bit too much irrelevant background detail in some places A ton of footnotes The there are no lurid crime scene photos, the descriptions of the crime are not unnecessarily graphic, which is a [...]


    13. This book appealed to the Miss Marple in me I love a good whodunnit and what better than a true life crime As I am not English, I had never heard of the White House Farm Murders and therefore had no background information to go by Wow I loved the rich detail that enabled me to follow each step of the crime and its investigation This raises lots of questions however, one minute I felt Jeremy was clearly guilty the next he could not possibly have done it His family had their own reasons to want hi [...]


    14. While being a fairly thorough examination of the events surrounding Jeremy Bamber and the murder of his family, I often felt weighed down by the often extraneous detail here I also felt that the book and its ultimate conclusion could have been stronger with some attention being paid to Mr Bamber s protestations of innocence and the outcome of subsequent appeals, as these aspects of the saga would do much not only to further the book s pretentions to impartiality, but also as illustrative of Jer [...]


    15. It was an interesting read although I got lost in the detail at times I had not heard of the case before as I live in Australia, so some of it was probably lost on me Despite the detail, the characters were rather two dimensional and while there were glimpses of the family s emotions it was all a bit flat.


    16. During immediately after the trial I believed Jeremy Bamber innocent.So I found it very interesting to be told what had really happened.Very detailed, but I found it compelling reading, hence I got thro it in just over a week


    17. Way way too much foreshadowing and history leading up to the murders, a lot of which didn t seem relevant, but then a fascinating read after.




    18. Very thorough, and the author was unbiased Maybe a little bit too much information on the victims characters before the murders, however it was a very enjoyable read.
