Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
In 1995 a chance encounter and a friendly gesture turned Rita Harling’s world upside down. Charming and friendly, Brian Kenny knew exactly how to gain Rita’s trust. Soon the couple were planning their future together.
Within no time their dream home became a hive of criminal activity. The isolated cottage on the Meath border was the perfect place for Kenny to build his criminal empire. But Mitchelstown Cottage hid a multitude of sins – including extreme violence. Trapped in the house of horror, surrounded by drugs, guns and stolen cars, Rita’s world fell to pieces.
Kenny became one of Dublin’s most notorious drug dealers and a hired assassin. Fuelled by drugs, his violent temper spiralled out of control. Rita was the frequent victim of his unpredictable and savage attacks – often witnessed by her children.
From a happy, stable and loving home in Finglas, on Dublin’s Northside, Rita had no idea how her life with Kenny would turn out. She had her job, her health and her beautiful young daughter – Kenny did his best to change all that.
Ensnared in Kenny’s demented world, Rita found the courage to fight back. She fought for her freedom, her independence and her children’s safety – and she came out on top. This is Rita’s story.
