Alexandria Marzano ~ Lesnevich was inspired to write her book after viewing a video tape of Rick Langley confessing to the murder of a six-year-old boy and having an overwhelming feeling of wanting him to die for his crime.
Val McDermid chaired the event which I surprisingly found to be very emotional. Val was the perfect person for this event. Fully informed and with cracking questions. Alexandria Marzano ~ Lesnevich and Val McDermid were the perfect fit.
The Fact of a Body takes us on a journey over many years with Alexandria Marzano ~ Lesnevich as she tries to discover the person behind Rick Langley and the slow realisation that her own childhood abuse at the hands of her grandfather was an actual crime.
Alexandria Marzano ~ Lesnevich is truly fascinating to listen to and I didn’t want the event to end. I had so many questions to ask. But I guess I will just have to read the book to get my own answers.
I’ve never left a book event teary eyed before and with a heavy heart. I was truly inspired by Alexandria Marzano ~ Lesnevich and her story. The message I guess is that everyone’s story is important and you should never hide from it or keep it a secret. But truly it’s having the courage to tell it. Much praise to Alexandria Marzano ~ Lesnevich for telling hers.

I especially liked the well-timed fireworks 😛 but you should read the book it’s really good and listening to her speak after reading it I felt like I understood a bit more where she was coming from 🙂
This book has been on my wishlist for some time now!
I’ve read this true crime novel and it really is a thought-provoking read that is easy to remember even after a lot of time has passed… I’m happy to see it made you feel this way too.
