The author exhibited an unexpected ability to use words to create a sense of atmosphere and place. This skill is uncommon in mystery writing.
Though the story was a bit predictable, the quality writing held my interest through the end. A great book for a long car ride...
At first I didnt think that I was going to like it because of the heavy southern accents, But then the story caught me and drew me in and I couldn't stop listening until I was done. It was the characters that really grabbed my attention and held me. I wanted to know what was going to happen to them.
One of the best audiobooks I've had the pleasure to hear. And I listen to one or two a week on my long commutes.
I picked this up on a whim. It was in a discount offer. Boy am I glad I did! It's a beautiful story exploring racism, prejudice, friendship, guilt, all rolled into thrilling murder mystery detective novel. You won't be sorry you listened.
The story was a somewhat interesting slice-of-life tale that was interesting enough to keep going but not enough to truly care. Narrator's voice work was excellent and really helped bring the characters to life. I don't often find this to be true but I don't think I would have enjoyed the printed book as much because of how well narrated this was.
I LOVED this book! I love a good cold case mystery, and this one ranks high on my list of favorites. Definitely looking into more titles from this author!
