This book was disturbingly violent, but I could look beyond that if I cared about the characters (I didn't) or if the plot was great (It wasn't). I love British crime fiction, so this was just a big disappointment. Oddly, the most interesting bit was the interview with the author at the end of the audio.
I have read and enjoyed all of Vince Flynn's previous books, and was extremely disappointed to find this offering had very little plot, and turned previously interesting characters into irritating and unlikeable caricatures. The entire book was about justifying torture and vigilante "justice". Pursuit of Honor? Not in my book. I think I've listened to my last Vince Flynn novel.
You will be rooting for the characters in this book. This book provides a fascinating look at the social divide of 1960's Mississippi. The stories of the "Help" are sometimes sad, sometimes hopeful, and sometimes triumphant. The narrators made them come alive. This is one of the best books I've read in the last few years.
