    I believe a reviewer should finish a book before submitting a review. What do you think?

    Story
    "I'm obsessed with Thomas H Cook"

    This is the third book I've now read/listened to by this author and so far I've found every one of his books to be so very interesting and engaging. This story revolves around the questions and secrets surrounding a young girl's murder and a young boy's (who as an adult becomes the small town physician) unrequited love for the girl. This book has mystery and meat. The small town politics and antics that often populate Mr Cook's stories serve as a backdrop for this book. It is the old south that I recognize from my past with it's often white-washed issues of class and racism ( no pun intended) and the dark underbelly of it all. This book confronts these issues in a multifaceted story that will hold your interest throughout. Good good good ! I'll be reviewing more of Mr Cook's books soon I bet!

    Story
    "a great literary mystery"

    It's virtually impossible to give this book the review it deserves without providing rampant spoilers. So I'll just say that I listened to the first hour believing (foolishly) that I knew where the story was headed, that I knew whodunnit and why. And I ended up listening to the last fifteen minutes with my mouth hanging open, catching flies and not caring, because the truth was much more shocking, much more tragic, than I would ever have let myself believe.

    This is a truly great literary mystery. Written with poetical prose, it lyrically reveals people in both their most debased and noblest lights. Thomas H. Cook is now officially on my "must-read" list, and I will definitely look for more titles narrated by George Guidall.

    Hope you enjoy this as much as I did!

    "Good story"

    Goos story, just a little bit too contemplative. The ending surprised me. The first part of the story a bit to long.
