No Peace Until He's Dead : My Story of Child Abuse at the Hands of Davy Tweed and My Journey to Recovery


In this candid memoir, Amanda Brown chronicles the unimaginable sexual abuse she suffered from the age of eight at the hands of her stepfather, Davy Tweed. No Peace Until He's Dead offers a raw and unflinching account of Amanda's childhood years marred both by the domestic abuse suffered by her mother at the hands of Tweed, and her own appalling trauma leading to her courageous pursuit of justice and recovery.

Davy Tweed, a DUP councillor, Orangeman and lauded rugby player for both Ulster and Ireland, maintained the veneer of upstanding citizen through his political and sporting life, yet he was unafraid to show an intimidating streak in public, notably with his involvement in the Harryville pickets, at which he was an unrelenting and vocal figure. However, this public ugliness paled in comparison to the violent incestuous paedophile he was behind closed doors.

This transformative memoir was born of Amanda's unwavering determination to find her voice and advocate for other survivors of domestic and sexual abuse. No Peace Until He's Dead forces us to confront a subject so often obscured by fear and shame, and serves as a testament that those who have suffered can overcome their past and find happiness.
