Under The Bridge


Nobody has ever really told the story Rebecca Godfrey tells in Under The Bridge. Nobody had ever really listened to the kids swept up in the events of that night. What would have been the point? Everyone thought they surely knew what happened. But the truth is rarely simple, and even though the case has been covered by journalists from around the world, it may be that someone who traffics in fiction has uncovered the most resonant truths of all.


-Simon Houpt, The Globe and Mail

"A brilliant, compassionate retelling of a horrific murder. Riveting"  - O, The Oprah Magazine

"Under the Bridge is an In Cold Blood for our colder times. Rebecca Godfrey brings a sympathetic imagination and a finely tuned ear for language to bear on a dark subject, with spectacular results. " - Evan Cornog, Publisher, Columbia Journalism Review
