Wearing leg irons would make any escape near impossible, unless you're an expert at picking locks like Houdini.

In Murder & Obsession, leg irons are used to keep a kidnap victim tethered. 

There'd be no escape from the horrors to come.

Murder & Obsession

                                                                               Photo Copyright
The moon sat high against the purple sky, and the cold marched forth across the land with murderous intent - overcome, smother, and marshal the surrender of all occupants. Winter had arrived.
            . . . Quinn held a heavy chain with an ankle lock, still fastened securely to the bed.  “And yet they tried to accommodate her needs.”
“Gayln?” Steven swallowed the drink and lay back gingerly but reached for the ankle lock. The weight of the instrument felt heavy in his hand but heavier on a heart already shattered. He pictured the iron around Sarah’s delicate ankle. “How long ago?” Hope turned to anger. His friend had done this to his fiancee. Why? What had motivated such betrayal?
“While you slept I took the dogs to the village, talked to a few folks. They saw Gayln with a couple but never saw your girl. The couple flew out Friday night. Gayln drove out two days ago. He packed carefully. He’s running or he’s off to spend his loot. I'm sorry son.”

  1. A friend's betrayal is the hardest to take. Poor guy!

    I hope he finds his fiancee alive.


  2. No chance for a crafty use of broken glass or a pilfered knife on leg irons.

  3. That sounds like a very sorry situation

  4. Yeah, I write about manacles on occasion--but mostly because I've got stories based in the medieval ages.

    Ooh! What is going to happen?

  5. Leg irons would sure be hard to get off and move in indeed.

  6. I'm always amazed that the nicest people write about the scariest things. Leg irons would be the worst kind of device in any situation, but this? Egads.

  7. I am still enjoying this book. When you get the chance can you send me the titles in the series or do you have them on Goodreads because I am now following you there?

    1. Hi, Pat, yes, they're all on this page too. I'll post them on your site too, in my next comment. Thanks!

  8. In several horor movies the sound of leg irons was used and it's scary enough even without seeing it...

    1. Hi, Zelkja, I can't imagine being tethered by them.

  9. Excellent excerpt! Certainly has me wondering what happens next.

  10. But one can never escape from oneself ;)

  11. Such a horrible betrayal, I hope they find her!

  12. Jeeesh! Betrayal by a friend is the worst.

  13. OOh, I am hooked~ Great job, Yolanda Renee!

  14. It's getting more and more difficult to wait for my flight to read the book. I am already hooked in, and can't seem to escape it.

  15. And I'm guessing those shackles weren't intended for a warm and fuzzy 50SOG moment either.

  16. How devastating it is to be betrayed!
