This is a very good listen.
The narrator keep a great pace and the story moved.
It was too long to listen to in one sitting but easy to pick up where left off.
I bought this book on the strength of reviews and wasn't disappointed. An historical saga, set in the fictional town of Delano Georgia, that spans 50 years and the office of three police chiefs. Racial tension and hatred are part of the everyday life of the residents of Delano, and throw into the mix the underlying threat of a serial killer.
The narrator was excellent except for his attempt at an Irish accent.
I was hooked very early in the book and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Waiting for the killer to be caught.
All the Chiefs were my favorite because the all had different personalities but they always guessed the killer.
Having the story read to you lets you visualize the characters like you were watching a movie.
No. It took several days to complete. I tried to listening while at work but couldn't cut if off sometimes.
I didn't care for the political stuff but the bringing all of the other story lines together was great. I was on edge waiting on the killer to be caught and confess his crimes.
This is a long story! Be prepared to span decades of a town's existence, with a few common elements wove throughout. The narrator masterfully performs each voice, black and white, male and female. Honestly, this is first male narrator on Audible that did a female voice without sounding like a tranny. Probably even more importantly, I gained a better perspective of the Deep South and Jim Crow.
Mr.Woods , I so enjoyed this book .I have read all your Stone Barrington novels but this one was my favorite.Hated to have it end.
Some of the important characters were not developed well enough, but I thought the main characters and their motives were well explained.
The ending was sudden but satisfying.
This was an exceptionally good book in total and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
The narration was excellent, the story line believable, the plot depth exceeded my expectations and kept me in my car several times. Great listen!
Having grown up in Alabama, I could clearly see the realism in this book. The characters are extremely well-drawn and portrayed. I found that I would take the longer, slower ride to work and back just to make sure I got enough listening in on my drive. Excellent book, wonderful reader, intriguing story that grabs you and doesn't let go. I can't imagine anyone not enjoying this book.

Multifaceted tale; murder mystery on one hand, a history of the South in another way and a history of many small towns all over the United States in another way.
Couldn't stop listening! Looking forward to more Stuart Woods!
