    The Poison Tree Kindle ✓ The Poison PDF/EPUB or poison epub, tree free, The Poison pdf, The Poison Tree eBookAn excellent read One system after another fails this family until finally someone takes the law into his own hands to straighten things out once and for all Grippingly written really gives you a clear sense of what these people went through on a daily basis The author paces the story according to what was going on and unfortunately that meant things slowed down drastically after we got into the court proceedings and the suspense builds in a very different way as they try to decide what to do with the killer and everyone attempts to carry on a normal life But ultimately that was as realistic as the earlier part of the story A solid 5 star read If you liked Richie and Sudden Fury or even Runaway Devil How Forbidden Love Drove a 12 Year Old to Murder Her Family you'll love this one

    The Poison Tree Kindle ✓ The Poison PDF/EPUB or poison epub, tree free, The Poison pdf, The Poison Tree eBookThis was interesting to read 37 years after the events in this book happened Especially in light of how society and the criminal justice system now defines and deals with child abuse in all its forms In 1982 when this all took place child abuse was considered rare and only involved broken bones in young children Father daughter incest was considered impossible the rate was considered 1 in 1000000 million if that Corporal punishment was the norm and disciplining children without the use of force or violence was considered permissive

    The Poison Tree Kindle ✓ The Poison PDF/EPUB or poison epub, tree free, The Poison pdf, The Poison Tree eBookReally 35 starsI'd give this book four stars for the quality of the writing and research but only three based on how much or how well I actually enjoyed reading it There's just not a lot to go on here I inferred that Maria was essentially a battered woman with no self esteem beginning at birth after living with a selfish and neglectful single mother But unlike most battered women I've read about she seemed incapable or unwilling to do much of anything to help her kids get out of the situation The children were certainly mistreated by a real ahole but could they have made it a few years and left home? Or even have been removed by the state before the murder and placed in care? There was just a general inertia surrounding the entire situation I don't know if the wife and kids faced a much worse reality than was presented in this book or what I really didn't get into this true crime story and it's definitely not one I'd highly recommend or read again I did re
