Summary

A spine-tingling account of the man behind the World’s End murders

On 15th October 1977, Christine Eadie and Helen Scott left the World’s End pub after a fun-filled night with two men in their arms. They had their whole lives ahead of them. They had nothing to fear and everything to look forward to. 

Their naked bodies were discovered the following day. They were found six miles apart from each other. No attempt had been made to conceal their bodies, and both girls had been beaten, gagged, tied, raped and strangled. 

The case attracted widespread media attention and despite the Police’s best efforts, they were unable to identify a culprit. Within the next six months, the investigation was scaled down. The World’s End killers were still at large. Free to continue terrorising the streets of Scotland. 

Thanks to the advances in DNA profiling, investigators were able to link the murders of Christine Eadie and Helen Scott to an Angus Sinclair, who was known to the Police. 

Sinclair had pleaded guilty to culpable homicide of an eight-year-old girl when he was just sixteen and was serving a life sentence for the murder of another seventeen-year-old girl. It is not known how many victims suffered at the hands of Sinclair. He is thought to have killed at least another four women but it could have been twice that amount. 

Bestselling author Ryan Green assumes the role of Angus Sinclair and attempts to fill in the blanks on one of Scotland’s most notorious serial killers. Sinclair is a shocking true story about lust, manipulation, dominance and extreme violence.

CAUTION: This book contains descriptive accounts of sexual abuse and violence. If you are especially sensitive to this material, it might be advisable not to read any further.

My Review

5/5 Stars

I always enjoy learning about new serial killers. I had never heard about Angus Sinclair before selecting this audiobook, but Ryan Green has a way of choosing interesting serial killers and delving into their truth. Sinclair was truly a spine-chilling person to learn about. His crimes are dark and ghastly. It leaves you to wonder exactly how a person gets to that point.

I’ve read a lot of true crime so not much bothers me at this point. Angus Sinclair did. The poignant way Ryan Green has of telling the story from the killer’s POV especially made this work difficult to stomach.

Narration matched the tone of this book.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
