Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent but disjointed Seemed to bounce around and wasn't the best format for my tastes. Certainly more information than the media ever bothered to look into or broadcast. A decent read.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing Book For some reason I found this book irritating to read. It jumped all over the place and had no cohesive plan, chapter by chapter. It didn't tell me enough either about who Reena Virk was ; just glimpses of what seemed like a troubled teenager. I also found it astonishing that there wasn't a single photo of her in the book except one of her as a little girl yet there were pictures of her murderers. It seemed to me that Reena's picture should have been front and centre, given the atrocity that happened to her. In my view, those kids should have been put in jail and the key thrown away.
