In November 2014 Arla Macleod bludgeoned her mother, father and sister to death with a hammer.
Now incarcerated at a medium-security mental-health institution, Arla will speak to no one but Scott King, an investigative journalist, whose Six Stories podcasts have become an Internet sensation.
King finds himself immersed in an increasingly complex case, interviewing five witnesses and Arla herself as he questions whether Arla's responsibility for the massacre was a diminished as her legal team made out.

Wonderfully written and utterly heartbreaking. A must read!

Absolutely incredible. Gripping, fascinating to the end. One of those books you can’t put down and left me feeling emotionally drained and more than a little indignant. Beautifully crafted blending reality with fiction seamlessly. I think I might have just found my new favourite author...

An absolutely brilliant writer. Stunned.

Would you listen to Hydra again? Why?

As soon as I had finished I went back to the beginning and replayed it over the next few days. It's so poetic, yet real, and thrilling and so shockingly sad. My heart broke.

What did you like best about this story?

Arla. Arla. Arla.

Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances? How does this one compare?

This is the most wonderful audio experience.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Oh yes.

Any additional comments?

I loved it so much.
