Publisher's Summary

A mother's story behind one of the most dramatic true crime cases in recent history. 

"I have lived every parent's worst nightmare. On what would have been my daughter's 29th birthday, Detective Superintendent Stephen Fulcher knocked on the door and told me my beautiful Becky was dead. She had been found buried in a shallow grave in a remote field in the Gloucestershire countryside. Becky had been brutally murdered." 

This is Karen's story of an unbreakable love for her daughter despite unimaginable tragedy: from her despair through Becky's troubled teenage years, to the agonising eight years when Becky was missing, and then the dramatic story of how a killer's confession led to a terrible discovery.  

Karen was thrown into a world where the truth was never guaranteed; where taxi driver Christopher Halliwell nearly got away with murder; where the police officer who found her daughter was punished instead. The one constant has been Karen's determination to fight for Becky, tirelessly campaigning for the truth about what happened and Halliwell to face the consequences of his evil actions.

The murders of Becky Godden-Edwards and Sian O'Callaghan will soon be the focus of major new ITV series A Confession starring Martin Freeman as Stephen Fulcher and Imelda Staunton as Karen Edwards.

A harrowing story, told well.

A sad story of what bullying can lead to. Poor girl was too delicate for this world.

Compelling

A gripping narrative that keeps you wanting to know more. Shocking in places especially where dealing with Agencies. You are left questioning their effectiveness. Rollercoaster emotions keep you wanting to know what comes next. The trauma of a family dealing with unimaginable pain. A stoical mother who refused to give in no matter what was thrown at her. Gripping right to the end. Thought provoking.
