[The owl theory] sounds stupid." —From the show
Released earlier this year, Smith's DEATH BY TALONS unravels the mysterious death of Kathleen Peterson on December 9, 2001, in her Durham, NC residence. The narrative takes a surprising twist with neighbor Larry Pollard proposing an audacious theory involving an owl attack. The contrast between police focus on Michael Peterson and Larry's unorthodox claim has spawned a narrative that continues to provoke questions two decades later.
In this engaging and thought-provoking conversation, Smith introduces an additional layer of intrigue to the well-known "staircase murder" case. Wicked Words, acclaimed for its distinctive fusion of narrative, nonfiction, and in-depth interviews, consistently unveils the compelling stories behind the stories. Host Kate Winkler Dawson adeptly explores the minds of journalists and writers, delving into the intricacies of their best true crime cases. From filmmakers to forensic psychologists, the array of guests is as diverse as it is fascinating.
This book is not intendend to defend Michael Peterson... This book is only a discussion of the evidence in this case and what it supports." —Tiddy Smith
Cheers to more riveting interviews on Wicked Words!
