The Murder of Jeffrey Dryden: The Grim Truth Surrounding Male Domestic Abuse by Troy Veenstra is an account of the circumstances surrounding the death of Jeffrey Dryden. In the early hours of July 18th in 2010, Jeffrey Dryden returned home after spending some time with his twin brother. Within minutes, he was dead, stabbed in the neck by his girlfriend, Chiquita. She was arrested and charged with the second-degree murder of Jeff but, as time went by, details began to emerge to show that life wasn’t all roses, that Jeff had been living a life of abuse, both verbal and physical. Jeff Dryden emerged as a victim, not just of murder but also of Male Domestic Abuse. This book talks about the time leading up to his murder and the trial of his murderer, as well as going into detail about the real problem of male domestic abuse.

Wow. I have to say that although I was aware of male domestic abuse, I had no idea it was that widespread. The Murder of Jeffrey Dryden: The Grim Truth Surrounding Male Domestic Abuse is written by Troy Veenstra, cousin to Jeffrey Dryden. He has clearly done a great deal of research here to bring us the statistics on instances of men being battered by their female partners and, perhaps more importantly, why it is ignored the world over. Troy Veenstra has written an amazing book here, one that should be read by everyone to open their eyes about something that is real, something not to be ignored. Excellent book, well done.
