Now a classic of true crime, Victim is a compelling and tragic look at how lives can be changed forever by a random act of violence. During an armed robbery, several hostages were brutally tortured, shot in the head, and left for dead. Victim focuses on the members of one family - including a mother who died after the attack and a son who was left barely alive - as they fought for his survival and struggled to rebuild their lives.
Victim was the first book to go beyond the headlines and statistics about violent crime, to tell the victims' dramatic story of love, loss, and courage. It remains one of the most influential books in the victims' rights movement and has become required listening in criminology courses across the country. It may be more relevant now than ever.

"Just as Capote did, Kinder has somehow created a story that is truer than true." (The Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

In Cold Blood
An amazing performance, not just narration, but actually acting out the book. Emotional, tense, frightened, angry, scared, dolorous....you will feel them all and hear them all in his voice.
I will definitely look to Gregory St. John's other performances for such realism.
