Summary

A devastating story of coercive control and domestic homicide. 

Why would an 'ordinary' father murder his family? On 19 July 2016, Claire and Charlotte Hart were murdered in broad daylight, by the family's father, using a sawed-off shotgun. He then committed suicide.  

Luke and Ryan Hart, the two surviving sons, open up about their experiences growing up and the circumstances surrounding the murders. They hope to highlight the patterns of behaviour in coercive control and its deadly consequences, improving public awareness and leading to informed discussion on domestic abuse. 

As featured in The Telegraph, The Sun, ITV, Channel 5, BBC Radio 5 Live and many more.

Honest, tragic, articulate.

A chilling yet heart warming account of two brothers who lost their mother and sister to theirs dads violence. This is a brilliantly articulate account of coercive control and the less well defined emotional, financial and psychological abuse. It will make you cry!

    5 out of 5 stars

practical and informative as well inspirational

This book will give you an accurate picture of what coercive control is and why it is such a serious issue that deserves more attention. The authors provide real life examples of scenarios from their own experience of living with an abusive parent and how he got away with it. They also provide practical everyday advice for helping other families and recognising the signs of domestic abuse. They explain very clearly how this sort of abuse is linked directly to paternalistic attitudes and how we can change our society for the better.

Preaching, sanctimonious, patronising

There are parts of this story that are so moving I had to stop what I was doing.
There are parts of this story that are so awe-inspiring it feels like the authors might start a revolution - victims of DV finally being listened to. Afterall, men talking about how disgusting and insidious chauvinism is might finally get it taken seriously
But the rest of this book is a monologue of patronising, pontificating, preaching crap.
I don’t say this lightly given the subject matter.
These two men obviously adored their mother and sister and went through (still go through) utter agony. But the editors of this piece really REALLY should have cut down (edited....do you job) the long winded introspection which is quite frankly repeated ad nauseum.
“We had to self amputate parts of ourself”
“We have become experts in ....”
Its horrendously written.

Fascinating. Now I understand why a woman stays.

I finally get it! I now better understand how an evil man can put invisible bars around a home trapping the family for years. It is a psychological profile of coercive control. The authors are two brothers, successful engineers in their 20s. The brothers are highly articulate, compassionate, and driven to tell the world about what it looks like to grow up with a nonviolent but evil and controlling father. (Look up their YouTube interviews.) The only act of violence was the horrific murder suicide of their mother and sister. I do have a major gripe. They should have fired their editor. The story is far too detailed at times and redundant. I put up with the long drawn out meandering story because the information shared is so important and educational.
