    Story
    (510)

    The life of a 10-year-old black girl is shattered by two drunken and remorseless young men. The mostly white town reacts with shock and horror at the inhuman crime, until her father acquires an assault rifle and takes justice into his own outraged hands.

    Paul Cragin says: "Lively voices tell gripping plot"

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Recommended for the reading by Michael Beck, who applies a seemingly endless variety of voices to characters in these intentionally-shocking tales of cold-blooded acts and even more frigidly sanguine lawyers. Grisham has a keen eye for what people do; and chooses not to often describe how they feel or what they themselves believe motivates them. "Irrelevant!" his storytelling seems to shout. If you can't parse it out from actions, you're not ready for Grisham. Most of us are ready.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Shocking events told in a style that's matter-of-fact, making them somehow more shocking.


    What does Michael Beck bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I don't have as many "voices" in my head as Beck has in this throat. Great fun.
