SALT LAKE CITY – On April 16, KSL will launch “The A Gentle Thief,” an audiobook told by KSL NewsRadio’s Amanda Dickson. It’s based on her fictional novel of the same name. “A Gentle Thief” is distributed as a free podcast thanks to the sponsorship of Superior Water and Air.

‘A Gentle Thief’: Story

“A Gentle Thief” is the story of a young girl, Madeline Johnson, found dead on New Year’s Day in Cedar City, Utah, with a single gunshot wound to her right temple, cradling a gun to her chest. Her neighbor found her and called the police to report a suicide.

The local police assumed it was a suicide, and everyone else did, too, except for the girl’s father. He was not unlike many family members of suicide victims in this regard, except that he fought for years — decades — to have her death certificate changed. This was his only mission in life.

Enter Sophie Brownlie, a young attorney who feels a passion for the first case she is handed, for the tragic death of this young girl 20 years ago, and for her father still suffering so many years later. “A Gentle Thief” is the unraveling of whether Madeline died by her own hand, or whether the boyfriend she had broken up with just days before her death was somehow involved or perhaps someone else, someone the police failed to look at might have played a role.

The novel is set in Las Vegas and Cedar City, and is filled with the language of Shakespeare, which Madeline loved, and which speaks to the reader throughout, helping her uncover the truth.
