    Story

    In 1964, when Ned Parker, farmer and part-time constable, is summoned to a cornfield one hot morning to examine the remains of a tortured bird dog, he discovers that there is a dark presence in their quiet community of Center Springs, Texas. Ned is usually confident handling moonshiners, drunks, and instances of domestic dispute. But when it comes to animal atrocities—which then turn to murder—the investigation spins beyond his abilities.

    Story

    Perhaps Thomas Wolfe was wrong; you can go home again. At least for eight and one half hours, the time it takes to listen to this story. No, that is not true, the, through memory and emotion, I have revisited a similar time and place for the past several weeks after completing my listen of this book.

    Narrated by anyone other than Traber Burns, it might have just been a good story. Those who listen to books know that narration matters. In the same vein as Robin Sachs narrating Jo Nesbo, Will Patton narrating James Lee Burke, and Heathcote Willimans narrating Dante Alighieri, Traber Burns and Reavis Z. Wortham are a perfect match. I have alredy downloaded Burrows, the next book, and I look forward to it with great anticipation.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    "Soap Opera fans will love this one!"

    Story

    At one point in the book, Nick says to Amy, "We are the two most needful people in the world and we are stuck with one another". A fair summation of the entire book, and unless you want to be stuck with the two of them for what seems to be an tnterminable period of time, avoid this book. My only saving grace was that I purchased the audible version, and therefore had the option of choosing the 2X speed option for the final third of the book, thereby getting it over with in half the time. Thank you Apple.
