Innocent Victims

"Innocent Victims" contains two chilling novellas about seemingly normal people driven to commit the most heinous crimes imaginable. CHICKENFEED is a crackling tale based on the true story of the chicken farm murder in East Sussex in 1924. Although Norman Thorne never confessed to killing his girlfriend, he was tried and hanged for the crime. Told from the points of view of Elsie and Norman, Walters creates a suspenseful tale of fiction based on fact. THE TINDER BOX is the story of Patrick O Riordan, a man arrested for the brutal murder of two women. As shock turns to fury, the village residents unite against the O Riordan family. But neighbor Siobhan Lavenham remains convinced that Patrick is innocent. Jeopardizing her own position within the community, she stands firmly in defense of the O Riordan name."
Product Details


This audio edition contains two novellas from Walters-"Chickenfeed" and "The Tinder Box." The first is based on an actual murder case that took place on an English chicken farm in 1924; the second charts the community's rage at the prime suspect in two savage slayings in the village of Sowerbridge. Given the premium that Walters places on the plausibility of average, everyday people committing evil and violence, it's vital that narrator Simon Prebble maintain the illusion of normalcy when voicing the novellas' characters. The aural deception Prebble creates is so effective that listeners will be stunned when the mask is finally removed. Prebble's rendition of different genders and accents is skillful and brings to life the author's characters. The result is a deliciously chilling listen. A Mysterious Press hardcover.
