R P Rochford

Author R P Rochfordabout this book: 'A Born Victim' is the story of Gill Brogan, a young single mother who is pushed deep into despair by workplace bullying. Just when she thinks nothing could get any worse she finds herself narrowly escaping an attempt on her life.

Set against this troubled life is the story of Lucy Taylor, an ambitious young detective who has dedicated herself to investigating violent crimes against women which all too often go unsolved. As she investigates case after case, each one more disturbing than the last, Taylor begins to see common threads which she hopes she can unravel to find the villains and bring them to justice.

The book reaches a climax as a determined, well organised criminal group emerges from the shadowy world of cyber-space to carry out one last crime in the real world. Lucy Taylor and her geeky side-kick, Mike Watson, are all that stand between the criminals and their victims.

Throughout the book, psychological themes are analysed lending a deeper, more serious note to the fast paced thriller as the author explores the factors which have formed our attitudes toward women and the acceptability of violence against them.

For me, writing about violence against women is best summarised by the words I put in the mouth of one of my characters: "It would be like smashing a priceless porcelain vase just to hear the noise it made." While I hope readers enjoy the detective aspects of the story and get caught up in the thrill of the chase I also hope they go away from this book with the very clear idea that women should be treasured, protected and never, ever subjected to violence.
