ARE YOU THERE ALONE? The Unspeakable Crime of Andrea Yates

by | Read by Becky Ann Baker

Contemporary Culture • 6.5 hrs. • Abridged • © 2004

Meticulously researched and sensitively reported, the story of model Texas housewife Andrea Yates, who drowned each of her five children in the bathtub, is a harrowing, fascinating listen. Far from the sensational journalism we've come to expect in cases like this, O'Malley's study delivers the story with intelligence and even compassion. Reader Becky Ann Miller is memorable, conveying not only the details, but the voices of distraught family members, cops, lawyers, and especially the opaque and troubled Yates. You will cringe as Baker enacts recorded transcripts of Yates's confession and observations, chilling and pitiful as they are. A riveting journey into psychosis, religion, law, and pity. D.J.B.
