    In the summer of 1987, Johnny Boone set out to grow and harvest one of the greatest outdoor marijuana crops in modern times. In doing so, he set into motion a series of events that defined him and his associatesas the largest homegrown marijuana syndicate in American history, also known as the Cornbread Mafia. Author James Higdon takes listeners back to the 1970s and ‘80s and the clash between federal and local law enforcement and a band of Kentucky farmers.

    If you could sum up The Cornbread Mafia in three words, what would they be?

    Good Old Boys


    Which character – as performed by Paul Boehmer – was your favorite?

    Johny Boone


    Any additional comments?

    The story line was good overall. However, I was becoming highly annoyed by the "numbers & statistics". Instead of saying there were 1,313,107 bottles of booze, or $417,411.32 whatever, would have been better saying about 1.3 million or $417 thousand. Sounds petty, but there were SO many instances of numbers like this that it became annoying, overwhelming, and hard to follow when your driving along listening to the book.

    I really did like the book, and am glad that Johny Boone is still out there growing pot somewhere. Hope they never catch him.

  • The Racketeer

    Given the importance of what they do, and the controversies that often surround them, and the violent people they sometimes confront, it is remarkable that in the history of this country only four active federal judges have been murdered. Judge Raymond Fawcett has just become number five.... Nothing is as it seems and everything’s fair game in this wickedly clever new novel from John Grisham, the undisputed master of the legal thriller.

    Ed says: "Grisham Light"
    "So over the top far fetched: Bored me to tears!"

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Anyone who is gullible and does not need an intelligent story line


    Has The Racketeer turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    Would you be willing to try another one of J.D. Jackson’s performances?

    Probably Not


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Boredom and so far fetched that it actually annoyed me.
