Lee — January 1, You are such a good man to push on the way you did, and that family is so lucky to have had you on their side. You painted a picture of every little detail and I am honoured to have read it. Honestly, I am really inspired by your story, well, Jeans story, the way you spoke of her made her seem like she was still alive. JH — January 1, This is a book that once I started reading, just could not put it down, the dedication of this Officer and the Homicide squad was amazing, it may have taken them years but they never give up to find justice for this beautiful young woman whose life was cut so cruelly from her.
A Must Read thoroughly recommend this! Jacqui — January 1, I found Seven Bones to be the best true crime novel of many I have read, This is an incredible story, told in a way that is riveting and jaw-dropping. In particular I found the chronology of the storytelling to be outstanding; often in true crime stories the flow of facts is out of order and this can be confusing, but here the timeline is clear.
Hopefully this book informs more people so that lessons can be learned, and other people better protected. May the ladies rest in peace, with God. Yael Lang — January 1, Fantastic book, a must to read. Its definitively a very gripping and comprehensive account of a western Sydney murder investigation.
Seven Bones: Two Wives, Two Violent Mureders, a Fight for Justice. by Peter Seymour
Highly anticipating a movie version…. Michelle Delph — January 1, ALI — January 1, An historical chronicle which highlights the frustrations of policing and the legal system of that era and its effects on dedicated police officers and the victims of crime. Particularly interesting to me as a was teaching in that area at that time. Nicole Clarey — January 1, Alice L Kent — Amazon review — January 1, Thank you for bringing this book to my attention SS.
Peter thank you for sharing this story with us and for never giving up!! You are a special person!! I read this true crime on my Kindle and was thrilled that pictures were shown of Jean and Rosaline and the 7 bones were shone also. A bit creepy when one is looking at real evidence compared to reading a fiction crime with no pictures, just your imagination. My heart goes out to the parents and Jeans son, all the relatives and friends of these 2 woman. Absolutely a heart breaking tragedy. Thanks and kudos to Peter Seymour and his family for the years it took with all the interruptions of not being able to spend quality time as a family during the long hours and time it took to get Tom Keir put away.
I have 3 Aussie slang sites in my favorites so I can quickly check out each and every Australian word that I am not familiar with. It has brought a whole new wonderful reading experience to me. VickiT — amazon reviews — January 1, However, the rest of the book made for compelling reading and gave invaluable insight into an intriguing case. The book also has a wonderful Aussie flavour. Blokes and mates abound. Alina — Amazon Review — January 1, This book details the literally years long and very dogged fight by one detective and his considerable team to bring a double wife murderer to justice.
They win in the end but, boy, is it a long slog. I am gobsmacked that this man was acquitted of the murder of his second wife — a more perfect circumstantial case I could not imagine and I have no idea what the jury was possibly thinking. This book could do with better editing for cliched writing style but the story is so absorbing that you stop noticing. This book leaves you glad that there are police officers like Peter Seymour out there. Truly focussed on justice, endlessly sympathetic to the family of the victims, despite considerable personal cost Peter Seymour and his team worked tenaciously to find the evidence to convict Thomas Keir of the murder of his wife Jean, even if they could not convict him of the murder of his wife Rosalina unbelievable!
An extraordinary story that makes it clear the ends the police will go to get their man despite the many impediments thrown in their way. ShelSmith — January 1, Lynda — November 12, It was a long journey 16 years before poor Jean could find peace. This book is a true crime story and as much as I want to say it was really good, it was really sad and made me angry. The book was well written and I loved that the author and scribe used the language 'of the day'.
I was lucky enough to receive this book as a birthday present from a very good friend who was also lucky and the author - Peter Seymour - actually signed this and his second book which is NOT on Goodreads - grrr I recommend this book to anyo Wow.

Seven Bones: Two Wives, Two Violent Mureders, a Fight for Justice.
The facts were written so the reader could understand them without needing a dictionary and that is a nice change from other true crime novels. This tale is haunting and shocking, and i'm glad that Tom was finally caught and charged for his crimes.
This seems more thrilling because it is an Australian tale, and being an Australian, it always hits closer to home when you know the place in which things as this take place. A fantastic tale of This novel was beautifully written, was clear and consice.
A fantastic tale of courage and perseverance. May 06, Sue-Ellen rated it liked it. Interesting, the murders happened not far from where I grew up. The book is written in the voice of the investigating detective which actually is a plus as you can tell he is a very genuine person. The subject is about a man who murdered both his wives, got off and then was pursued for 10 years until the truth was revealed. Shows you how hard it is to prove the obvious in front of a jury and how easy it is to get away with a crime.
Seven Bones This is a great true crime novel told by the detective that spent years on the case. This novel was different for me because it is about the victims and their lives instead of about the killer.
That made it a more special kind of true crime to me and I will remember it for a long time. Feb 28, Maggie rated it really liked it Shelves: Detailed account of the murder charges brought against Thomas Keir for the deaths of his two wives.
Told in a chatty, blokey way. The only thing which seemed totally out of place were the supposed supernatural encounters of the lead detective. Feb 16, Katie rated it liked it Shelves: Every day I think of the things that I am thankful for. After finishing this book, today I am so very grateful for Detective Peter Seymour and everything that he did for these victims and their families.
