Soon they meet another vacationing German couple, Charly and Hanna, who introduce them to a band of locals—the Wolf, the Lamb, and El Quemado—and to the darker side of life in a resort town.Late one night, Charly disappears without a trace, and Udo’s well-ordered life is thrown into upheaval; while Ingeborg and Hanna return to their lives in Germany, he refuses to leave the hotel.

    Story
    What disappointed you about The Third Reich?

    This story could have been told three paragraphs, maybe four if the author insists on including the World War II war game.


    Did Simon Vance do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    The narrator is, as usual, very good.

    The Thebes State Penal Farm in Mississippi is up a dark river, surrounded by swamps and impenetrable piney woods. It’s the Old South at its most brutal - a place of violence, racial terror, and even more horrific rumors. Of the few who make the journey, black or white, even fewer return.

    But in that year, two men will come to Thebes. The first is Sam Vincent, the former prosecuting attorney of Polk County, Arkansas who, with great misgivings, accepts a job to investigate a disappearance.

    Maryann says: "Too brutal at times-but the narrator is awesome"
    "Illogical from start to finish, racist, sadistic"

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

    Ill-informed people who might believe the 1940's took place in the 1830's


    Would you ever listen to anything by Stephen Hunter again?

    No


    Would you be willing to try another one of Eric G. Dove’s performances?

    His southern drawl was overdone and unrealistic.


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

    Sorrow that I wasted a credit on this book.


    Any additional comments?

    A ridiculous plot, a Jack Reacher wannabe
