Matthew serves as clerk for a magistrate. He's not only a clerk but a remarkable thinker. What makes Matthew unique among so many literary heros is that Matthew's thoughts don't always lead him to the right conclusion, but always to conclusions that will interest the listener.
McCammon offers listeners well fleshed out characters, characters you will come to appreciate. In addition, he spins a tale worth listening to and listening to again.
Although his tale is set in a time of hardship and superstitions, McCammon touches many of the weaknesses and strengths of people of any era. Greed and murder are balanced by love and tenderness in a timeless story.
I highly recommend "Speaks the Nightbird."
