FRED & ROSE
The Full Story of Fred and Rose West and The Gloucester House of Horrors

'[Sounes] tells a clear, straightforward tale.... It is a story of obsessive love as well as obsessive murder.'
Paul Barker, The Times

Introduction

In 1994, while working as a newspaper reporter, Howard Sounes broke major stories in the case of Fred and Rose West, the married couple who raped, murdered and mutilated young women and girls in the city of Gloucester, in the west of England.

For the most part, the Wests' victims were sexually abused, and their bodies cut into pieces. Often evidence of sexual torture was found with the remains, which were concealed under the Wests' home at 25 Cromwell Street, Gloucester, and other locations nearby.

Having covered the case, Sounes wrote this bestselling book about the case, first published in Britain as a paperback by Warner Books (now Time Warner Books, ISBN 0-7515-1322-9) in 1995, and reprinted many times since, selling more than 300,000 copies.

It is currently available as a Sphere paperback and as an e-book.
