Suzanne Leal talks to Jaqueline Bublitz whose novel, Before You Knew My Name, is taking the world by storm. Jacqueline discusses why she decided to spotlight the victim instead of the perpetrator and how she brought her unforgettable character, Alice Lee, to life. Then Jaqueline joins the Bad: All About Crime Book Club panel - Suzanne, Andy. Catherine and Sue - to explore other victim-driven narratives in crime fiction. All the books discussed can be purchased from podcast partner Booktopia.
