Product Description

In December, 1924, a murder took place on a chicken farm in East Sussex, England. Although Norman Thorne never confessed to killing his girlfriend, Elsie, he was tried and hanged for the crime. In Chickenfeed, Walters burrows deep into an English legend, creating a suspenseful tale of fiction based in fact. Was Thorne guilty? If so, what was his motive?

Set in the small village of Sowerbridge, The Tinder Box is a tale of chilling ambition. Patrick O’Riordan has been arrested for the brutal murder of elderly Lavinia Fanshaw and her live-in nurse, Dorothy Jenkins. As the village unites against the O’Riordan family, Siobhan Lavenham is convinced that Patrick is the victim of a prejudiced investigation. But when terrible secrets come to light, she is forced to question her loyalties.


“Simon Prebble is at his best, evoking time and place and using his estimable gift for dialect with spot-on accuracy.”

“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.”
      —Publishers Weekly
