Murder Most Foul  by Larner 3 Review(s)
BranwynReviewed Chapter: 20 on 11/28/2011
We finally meet the defendants! Garestil is obviously a few bricks shy of a load. And poor Danarion thinks the deputation is there to witness his execution. Berevrion is wise to continue to treat them as felons. Clearly there are people (like that annoying couple) who will refuse to even consider that the boys might be innocent and will be enraged if they escape punishment. Another great chapter! This is an amazing story. And has inspired me to do some reading on the real-life case.

Author Reply: Poor Garestil isn't really all that bright, is he? But he's a decent sort.

What else is Danarion supposed to think? At least he's realized that there's at least a chance now that he'll be vindicated.

And the pure poison of some of the nonsupporters in the real case is hard to imagine, even when we've been aware of it for almost two decades!

This is the most powerful chapter I have read thus far (it took me three lunch breaks to finish it). The three victums have proven to be far more intelligent than they were given credit for. I am totally on Danárion's side and can't wait to see what happens to him next. I am sure the Lord Aragorn will find a good trade for him.

Author Reply: I'm so glad you followed this through to the end, and regret I've been so tardy in responding. Life has been far too full for the past few months, I've found.

Today Damien Echols and his wife are in New Zealand as the guest of Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh, and I wouldn't be in the least surprised to find he and Lorri were included in some of the scenes of the Hobbit movie. PJ and Fran have been staunch and generous supporters for these three young men, and I hope they realize how much those of us who've followed the case seeking real justice for years appreciate what they did to help free Damien, Jason, and Jessie, and their insistence on seeing the investigation properly funded to learn who truly killed Michael, Christopher, and Steve.

Thanks so very much, Tari!

Poor Danárion! To learn of Targon's death that way and how he finally began to appreciate him when it was too late. It made me tear up.
I'm glad that Danárion and Carenthor don't blame Garestil. Danárion's eagerness to meet the king is so funny (in a good way). He's like a little kid in a candy store! Very interesting chapter!
God Bless!


Author Reply: One of the things that the NONs tend to hold against Damien and Jason, for some reason we can't appreciate, is that neither holds what happened against Jessie, who was convinced to "confess" to have been there while allegedly the other two killed the three children. Jason's tales of being pressured and threatened as they tried to get him to testify against Damien are rather chilling, actually. Neither felt that Jessie could have been expected to hold out against the pressure put on him.

And I do believe Danarion would love to meet the King Returned!

I just wish that Damien had as much to think well of his adoptive stepdad as does Danarion!
