On the River Road, at a dark bend in the South, a shadow lives. And at that bend, a man and his slave are pulled together by a mysterious connection. The master inherits a plantation and plans to marry his love and put aside his past, while the slave lingers at his side, accepting of his place and detached from hope. But neither man has memories that can easily be forgotten. When a death forces both of them onto the road, each races toward his own kind of freedom, which can only be earned in a place where neither one of them leads or follows. All the while, the shadow of the River Road pursues. It stalks them with steel and lead and perhaps the most dangerous weapon of all - the past.

Gripping story. Needed to find out how it would turn out for the characters. A good listen on a road trip!
I really enjoyed listening to this one. The narrator kept me hooked, the characters were all clear, developed personalities, and relatable - likable or not.
It's a cool look at a moment in history from a unique perspective, a story that pits ingrained culture against individual morality and growth with some graphic adventure, companionship, exploring loss and how our memories shape us.
I loved the pacing and felt like I was watching a riveting movie while listening - I hope they make this into a film - it would definitely be rated R for graphic language and violence, reminds me of a Tarantino-esque piece.
I wasn't sure the first couple of chapters, but Ben quickly turned up the narration and pulled me into this mystic river road world. the audible is great because the author does a great job with all of the characters. I'm looking forward to more
I beleive this author will be putting his unique spin on many more stories with his pulp fiction type feel.
