When, in 2009, the terrible truth about the Castlerock ‘suicides’ was finally uncovered, the nation was gripped by the compelling tale of sex, drugs, deceit, greed and murder – laced with a hefty dose of evangelism. I have devoted years to investigating the killings, one of the most distressing cases of domestic murder in the last half century, and my book is now the basis of major new ITV drama series, The Secret.
It is a story not just of lust and selfish greed, but of near unbelievable hypocrisy among church-going evangelicals in protestant Northern Ireland – and of a police force too cowed, too trusting, to mount a proper investigation.
