Pros and cons


I seldom find a book where I flip site after site because the book is so gripping it’s almost impossible to put it down. However, The Evil Within, murdered by her stepbrother, made me walk right through each page because this book by Darren Galsworthy tells the tale about Becky and his family without filters. You can feel his joy as well as his agony. Mr. Galsworthy takes us through Becky’s entire life and the rest of his family; he seems like an open book. The Evil Within murdered by her stepbrother is an authentic but heartbreaking read with lots of emotions from the writer. Darren manages to take his readers through every detail of the murder and dismemberment of his darling daughter. 

The book provides us with pictures of Becky Watts and the rest of the family. The images give us readers an emotional connection to all the people involved; when seeing Becky and her family’s pictures, you can’t help getting the feeling that they were people you knew. Images like this give a special connection between the author, the involved people, and the reader.



I found it hard to find any cons in Evil Within murdered by her bother; however, if I had to point something out, it would be at the beginning where Darren tells about Becky’s stepmom; the wording became a bit too sugary sweet to my taste. While that is my opinion, it might not be yours.


The writing of The Evil Within murdered by her brother

When I look at the book The Evil Within murdered by her brother, the book is written with a good wording flow, making it a real page-turner. There is a lot of love and anger in the writing that makes sense in every aspect. This book is for all interested in the true crime genre, no matter if you are new in the real crime book community or you have been a real crime enthusiast for years.


I don’t use to write warnings when I do my reviews; however, I know some new people in the real crime book community might find it very hard reading a graphic book. Therefore please be warned The Evil within murdered by her stepbrother is vivid in Becky’s murder and dismemberment. Hence this book might not be for you if you are faint at heart. Finally, I can reveal that the book does not include any graphic pictures. Therefore please be aware of what you let yourself into if you decide to read this book.
