    The latest from the author of When the Wind Blows and Kiss the Girls reveals Patterson at the peak of his power and is easily his most dynamic and compelling psychological thriller to date. Here is a chilling villain, a love story of great tenderness, and a plot of relentless suspense and heart-pounding pace.

    Overall

    This listen was extremely disappointing! I couldn’t wait for it to painfully grind to a final finish and had to stop listening about half way through.
    The narrator was not an ideal choice in this instance. The nerve rash that I felt consumed any pleasure I may have gotten from a good story written by a brilliant writer.
    Perhaps if a more talented or experienced narrator were contracted this could become a rescue and salvage success.

    Story

    From 1926 to 1928, Gordon Stewart Northcott committed at least 20 murders on a chicken ranch outside of Los Angeles. His nephew, Sanford Clark, was held captive there from the age of 13 to 15, and was the sole surviving victim of the killing spree. Here, acclaimed crime writer Anthony Flacco - using never-before-heard information from Sanford’s son Jerry Clark - tells the real story behind the case that riveted the nation.

    "Couldn't Stop Listening."

    What made the experience of listening to The Road Out of Hell the most enjoyable?

    I had mixed emotions about this but ultimately I found it a very satisfying listen. I'm a fan of true crime, a well written and good narration of the story is a bonus.
    This was a compelling story of tragedy and resilience. At times Flacco's descriptions of the places and characters is lacking. There could have been more detail's to the little things about the characters and scene settings that draw the reader in deep, but I loved his narration. His animation kept me listening.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Anthony Flacco and Jerry Clark ? Why or why not?

    Yes. I spend long hours driving a truck and any driver knows that those 10 hours can sometimes feel like 20 hours.....a good book is worth the investment.


    What about Anthony Flacco’s performance did you like?

    His enthusiasm for the story. Characters were believable and I felt emotions, both empathy and disgust, for the range of goodness and evil that exists in this true story.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Evil has blood relatives too.

    Hugh De Luc, a poor innkeeper, returns home from the First Crusade wearied from battle and disillusioned by carnage. After journeying from the Holy Land back to his own small village, he finds his nightmare is just beginning.

    Overall

    At first I didn’t think that I would like this book. I was pleasantly mistaken on what I thought it was going to be about. I was very pleased with this purchase. Filled with seduction and treason, this listener and longtime Patterson fan, could not turn it off.
    A unequally different delight. Highly recommended.
