PAGE TURNER: Bushey resident releases debut crime thriller with links to the town

 Published on: 22nd August 2022   |   By: Holly Bullen   |   Category: Uncategorized

A Bushey resident has released their first new crime novel which even draws inspiration from the town.

Victoria Goldman, who works as a health journalist for her day job, released her debut crime thriller The Redeemer in July.

The thriller tells the story of a series of murders in a small English town as a journalist delves deeper to uncover the truth.

Speaking about including elements of Bushey, Victoria said she wanted to create a fictional place so she could use artistic licence but also include memorable features.

She said: “I liked the idea of setting a book in Hertfordshire as there aren’t many crime novels set here.

“The book features a Jewish community and I wanted this to be similar to those in Hertfordshire.

“The media often shows pictures of very religious Jewish people, but I wanted to portray that most Jews are like everyone else – that there’s a strong sense of community but people vary in how religious they are.”
