My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I must say, this is probably the most compelling book I have ever read. Absolutely fascinating in so many ways, resulting in me being completely engrossed reading the transcripts of interviews from the FBI.
By the end I was left with so many thoughts and questions running around in my head, while acknowledging that this is one of the most heart wrenching true life stories I have come across.
We guess it’s safe to say most people will have heard of the Watts case.
Christopher Lee (Chris) Watts, the dashing, seemingly genteel, affable man who murdered his entire family in a calculated attack that shocked the entire world.
Shanann Watts, his pregnant, incredibly beautiful wife whose life was snuffed out because her doting husband decided he wanted a fresh start.
Bella Marie and Celeste Cathryn (CeCe) Watts, adorable sisters who worshipped their father, the very man who suffocated them both in cold blood using their comfort blankets against them. He then went on to dispose of their tiny bodies into huge tanks filled with toxic crude oil.
Nico Lee Watts, Chris and Shanann’s unborn son.
No doubt, most of you watched the story unfold on the news, open-mouthed, in total shock. What could push a loving father to brutally murder his family? Surely there was some mistake? We all have preconceived ideas of how a monster should look–grotesque, hideously deformed, a crazed madman–not this handsome, mild-mannered, shy, polite gent who was often portrayed as the perfect husband and father.
So, what happened?
During this series we will look at the facts, the police investigation, the evidence, hear Chris Watts’ explanation and his reasoning. We will try to make some sense of what occurred during the early hours of August 13th 2018.
We will endeavour to present to you all aspects of the case, right from the initial investigation and how it unfolded, to the first and subsequent confessions all transcribed word for word (where possible) from actual video and audio footage obtained from the FBI’s Discovery Files.

BOOK AUCTION FOR
About Luna Lopez
Our dear friend and author, Luna Lopez has been battling metastatic cancer since late 2019. She was determined to win the fight and after countless chemotherapy and radiotherapy sessions, surgery followed, and for a time, she kicked cancers arse into submission.
Sadly, cancer had other ideas and returned, metastasizing in other parts of her body.
Still, she is resolved to fight and to this day continues to do so if only for her five young children who spur her on.
Too proud to accept charity, let’s get together and show the world what the book community has in abundance, a great big heart.
The goal of this auction is to help ease the many burdens Luna faces on a daily basis, to give her the option of spending quality time with her family, to do the things she has always wanted to do, just the little things most families take for granted, but for reasons beyond her control, she is unable to do right now.
Luna is a beautiful lady with real heart and soul who deserves so much more than fate has given her.
