The Parenticide Club

Read by Peter Yearsley

(4.4 stars; 89 reviews)

Ambrose Bierce (1842 - 1914?), best known as journalist, satirist and short story writer. Cynical in outlook, economical in style; Bierce vanished while an observer with Pancho Villa's army.

Four grotesque short stories about murder within the family, seen through the gently innocent eyes of family members ... usually the murderer himself.

Mr. Yearsley's languorous vocal style is perfectly suited to the darkly witty material.
