The Beast of Jersey


A very disturbing cover for a very disturbing book. 'The incredible story of the man who terrorised the island for eleven years'. Told by his wife Joan Paisnel. Would have hated to stumble across this book as a child - the cover is scary enough for an adult. I imagine the fact that it is based on reality adds to the terror.

  1. This one has pride of place on my shelf. A very good read, and every bit as disturbing as the cover promises.
    Not nice.

  2. I read it years ago and was genuinely shocked by the dark accounts, which have no connection whatsoever with the 2008 Haut de la Garenne child-sex/killer-cult allegations in Jersey.
