About the book:

Wendy Crompton's son William and his girlfriend Fiona were killed in a horrendous attack by a young man when William was just 18 years old. Justice for William shares Wendy's experience of what followed the murders when, as a secondary victim, she was treated in ways that ranged from insensitivity to downright prejudice and lack of respect. She was kept 'out of the loop' that is the criminal justice system, causing her anxiety, stress, and mistrust of everyone from the police, paramedics and the psychiatrists, to the coroner's officer who prevented her from kissing William goodbye and ejected her from the mortuary. Furthermore, the doctors could not satisfactorily explain why they had released her son's killer, the detective said that her son was better off dead than alive, and the funeral director told her "You can't afford flowers." This hard-hitting, remarkable, and challenging book  that should be read by anyone and everyone who comes into contact with victims of crime  also tells of the good that exists in many people and the decency of those who saw Wendy through her experiences. With a Foreword by Terry Waite CBE.
