Paedophiles are ‘terribly ashamed’ of the revelations made about them by their wives, according to a new book.
The book, entitled ‘I Love You, Daddy’, has been launched by a woman who has been sexually abused by one of the UK’s most notorious paedophiles, David Bowe.
She says she is ‘terrifyingly’ aware of the damage that has been done by Bowe and the men who are now facing jail for their roles.
In an exclusive interview with TalkSport, the author, who is still being kept under surveillance, said she has been forced to live with the fear that she and other victims are being ‘raped out of the goodness of their hearts’.
The book has been released to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the publication of ‘I love you, daddy’, the first of a series of letters between Bowe, who was jailed for life in 1999, and his wife, Lisa Bowe , a journalist.
Ms Bowe wrote the letters, which were published in 1998, to her husband after he left her for another woman.
Bowe was convicted of 50 charges of sexual activity with children, but was jailed in a deal with the CPS which has since been overturned.
Bowes was originally arrested in 1995 for sexually abusing a girl aged eight in a house in the village of Salford.
He was jailed at Birmingham Crown Court in 1999 for life and was released in 2002.
Bowee married Lisa Bowes in 1998 and the couple had two daughters before divorcing in 2002 in what became known as the ‘Love Boat affair’.
Bowe became the first British man to be jailed for abusing a child after being convicted in 2002 of abusing a boy aged five.
He later admitted another two offences of child sexual assault.
Bowed was released from prison in 2005.
