Mystery & Suspense • 10.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Gary Hoffman masterfully narrates this historical thriller based on a true crime in Leesburg, Virginia, in 1872. Emily Lloyd, a young widow considered odd even by her friends, is charged with murdering her four children, her husband, and her aunt. In a town full of jealous wives and mysterious neighbors, everyone is already convinced of Mrs. Lloyd's guilt--except Powell Harrison, a kind defense attorney who is committed to upholding justice and discovering the truth behind the Lloyd family's horrible fate. Hoffman's formal tone accentuates the rich period details, archaic medical vocabulary, and courtroom drama. This performance will have listeners contemplating the guilt or innocence of Emily Lloyd and thinking about the characters long after the audiobook's last chapter.
