Audible Editor Reviews

Caroline Lee delivers a sensitive performance of Australian writer Ian Bone's The Song of an Innocent Bystander. Freda is haunted by an incident that occurred 10 years earlier. At the age of nine, she entered a restaurant and found herself in a gunman hostage situation that lasted for 36 hours. Now, a newspaper reporter wants to uncover whether she was a victim, or something more. The search for the truth escalates, and Freda is forced to face the past, leading to a dramatic finale.

Publisher's Summary

Ten years ago, nine-year-old Freda walked into an underground restaurant and straight into a hostage situation. Those 36 hours still haunt her every move. But was she just an innocent victim manipulated by the one stranger who showed her any kindness: the gunman?

A newspaper reporter is starting to pry. He says he knows things about that night. Freda must start revealing and dealing with her burden of survival. This gripping thriller grabs listeners' attention from the first introspective moments through to the explosive ending.
