Descripción

NORBURY'S CONFESSION is fiction, with all the usual caveats and disclaimers about similarity to actual people, living or dead, being completely copincidental, but the characters are portrayed against the backdrop of some actual historical events. It would be hard to dispute, for example, that the New York subway system opened in 1904, but in another segment, there is no definitive explanation of how and where the influenza epidemic began at the end of World War I. While there is murder in our story, it's not a murder mystery, but rather a story of how and why. Our story involves the asbestos industry because evidence has shown that it was a particularly egregious field of misconduct where the dangers of exposure were known for decades among upper management. These dangers were purposefully and systematically concealed from the people who worked with asbestos products as well as the general public." This book has 304 pages + appendix.

Sinopsis:

Born into a life of wealth and privilege at the dawn of the twentieth century, Robert Norbury’s life became a self-indulgent train wreck of lies and murder as he determined to do whatever was necessary to keep the Pittman-Simons Corporation healthy and profitable. Is it still called murder if lies and deception are the only weapons used? “Norbury’s Confession” is set against a backdrop of the American century, a kinescope of vignettes showing how the lives of the patrician Norbury family of New York eventually intersect with a hard working farm family from the American Midwest. Bill Lambie, a child of the depression and a battle-hardened frontline veteran of the Second World War, never even heard of Robert Norbury until a life defining moment reveals that this obdurate stranger held Bill’s very life in his hand.
