Serial killers' daughter Mae West signs memoir | The BooksellerMae, the eldest surviving daughter of Rose and Fred West was involved in the project and he persuaded her to tell the world what it was really like growing up, and what the last twenty plus years have been like being the daughter of probably the most notorious of all female serial killers. Because of my early interest I have read most if not all of the books written about the crimes but I was very interested to hear how Mae came to terms with the realisation that her mother had been far more involved than Mae had wanted to believe. This is a side of crime and the awful ripple effect that is rarely examined. Mae is at pains to impress that while there was abuse and other unsavoury things going on at home, they also celebrated birthdays, had a lovely sit down Christmas lunch and were turned out to school in spotlessly clean clothes and Rose took the children to school she picked them up at home time. Mae also puts to bed the lie that the West children knew no better than the way they were bought up. Even as children, as children generally are, they were aware where the differences between their homelife and those of those of their peers. What most impressed me is that Mae manages to get across that just because she was played a very bad hand in the cards of life she has her own aspirations, she has passed the right values onto the next generation as have her sisters who she remains close to.

The Eastleigh branch of The Works has apologised after a title about the notorious murderer was mistakenly put on promotion. A bookshop chain has been slammed by a horrified customer after a book about serial killer Rose West was featured on a Mother's Day display. Rose West is serving a life sentence after being found guilty of ten murders, most of which were committed at the squalid home she shared with husband Fred. Her victims included her year-old daughter Heather and Fred's eight-year-old stepdaughter Charmaine. But a bookshop chain with branches across Hampshire decided a book about her horrific crimes should be promoted as an ideal gift for Mother's Day. Shopper Sheila Kimber complained to staff after going into the Eastleigh branch of The Works and seeing the book on show. She said: "It's all about Rose West and her crimes and was displayed quite prominently in a 'Gifts for Mother's Day' section.
The Works, in Eastleigh, apologised after a stunned shopper told staff it was "very poor taste" to have the book detailing childhood abuse as a present for mums. It takes its name from letters West sent to her daughter, which she would always sign off "love as always, mum xxx". West was convicted of ten murders , carried out with husband Fred in the s and 80s, including the sickening killings of her daughter Heather, 16, and eight year old step-daughter Charmaine.
