Descripción

Dr Chris Cowley has been corresponding with moors murderer Ian Brady for six years, and has interviewed him extensively on several visits to Ashworth maximum security hospital in Liverpool. With the removal of a high court gagging order this insightful book includes extracts from over 50 letters written by Ian Brady to Dr Cowley plus details from interview transcripts. Face to Face with Evil is an unflinchingly detailed and highly emotional account of what it was like to be caught, tried and convicted of serial murder. An in-depth look at Brady's relationships with other notorious murderers during his incarceration, including his thoughts and emotions concerning Myra Hindley at the time of their arrest, throughout their prison sentences and at her death. As Brady moves into his eighth year on hunger strike this book reveals his thoughts, emotions and actions in relation to his victims and their survivors.

De Publishers Weekly

13/09/2010 – Edinburgh Insp. John Rebus is far and away the greatest creation of best-selling author Ian Rankin, but neither the brooding, dogged detective nor his creator is well-served by this amateurish book. Cabell begins with an interesting premise: "I'm simply interested in the man and his creation here and the parallels between them." There are parallels, and Cabell strives mightily to unearth how Rankin developed his popular character (Rebus was "retired" in the 2007 novel Exit Music) through a combination of close reading of the books and interviews. But the results are rarely satisfactory. The writing is sloppy, and the insight isn't insightful enough to really "explain" the riddle that is John Rebus. Some of the best observations come from Rankin himself ("I think Rebus joined the Police Force because it allowed him to be a voyeur—it allowed him to look into other people's lives rather than look into his own."). Cabell is better when he explores Rankin's other main character, Scotland, and, in particular, Edinburgh and the stark contrast between its public, tourist-friendly face and its background of crime and corruption. (He also provides some literary insight, pointing out the connections between Robert Louis Stevenson's Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde in the Rankin novels Knots and Crosses and Hide and Seek.) The volume includes nice photos of Rankin and Rebus's Edinburgh haunts as well as summaries of Rankin TV shows and a Rankin bibliography.
