Blood Echoes: The Infamous Alday Mass Murder and Its Aftermath | [Thomas H. Cook]

Blood Echoes: The Infamous Alday Mass Murder and Its Aftermath

It was not a clever killing. On May 5, 1973, three men escaped from a Maryland prison and disappeared. Joined by a 15-year-old brother, they surfaced in Georgia, where they were spotted joyriding in a stolen car. Within a week, the four young men were arrested on suspicion of committing one of the most horrific murders in American history. Jerry Alday and his family were eating Sunday dinner when death burst through the door of their cozy little trailer. Their six bodies are only the beginning of this gruesome story.

Publisher's Summary

A true-crime account of a vicious massacre and the legal battles that followed.

It was not a clever killing. On May 5, 1973, three men escaped from a Maryland prison and disappeared. Joined by a 15-year-old brother, they surfaced in Georgia, where they were spotted joyriding in a stolen car. Within a week, the four young men were arrested on suspicion of committing one of the most horrific murders in American history.

Jerry Alday and his family were eating Sunday dinner when death burst through the door of their cozy little trailer. Their six bodies are only the beginning of Thomas H. Cook’s retelling of this gruesome story; the horrors continued in the courtroom. Based on court documents, police records, and interviews with the surviving family members, this is a chilling look at the evil that can lurk just around the corner.

    What did you like most about Blood Echoes?

    The story although disturbing as it's a true story, is well researched and well written. Truth is more disturbing than fiction. The writer gives a well balanced account of events looking back at the lives of the characters prior to the event happening. This gives the listener a chance to better understand how events transpired.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Blood Echoes?

    The brutality of the events.


    What three words best describe Kris Koscheski’s performance?

    Bland


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Worth a listen for the story unfortunate that the narrator is a bit flat in his delivery.
