Publisher's Summary

Award-winning author Joan Hess packs mayhem, outrageous characters, and hijinks into this rollicking mystery set in rural Arkansas.

Beleaguered chief of police Arly Hanks has her hands full when modern technology moves into small town Maggody, bringing with it controversy and murder. Maggody's high school has a new computer lab. Folks are calling the internet the Devil's workshop, but the adult computer class is filling up. Soon friends are exchanging E-mail, and the preacher is posting sermon notes. But when some mighty unusual images flash across monitors--and a pretty computer student is found dead in an abandoned shack--the town demands Arly find the answers. With tempers flaring and rumors raging, it will take all of Arly's low-tech resourcefulness to find the cold-blooded killer.

Narrator C.J. Critt's sense of timing hones the hilarity and keeps you guessing throughout.

    "Maggody is worth the read"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Definately. It is funny, it portrays the


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Most of the time. Of course, as in any good


    Have you listened to any of C. J. Critt’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. It was a little difficult to realize that the murder victim was a youngster, but as her character developed later in the book, it made it more palatable. As for the performer, she is excellent. She has her characters well developed, although Ruby B seems to have more of a Bronx accent than your local Arkansas dialect. Overall


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listen to these as I commute, so this would not be possible, but I certainly looked forward to each new listen.

    "Quirky Hit"

    A witty farce; full of ingeniously crafted quirky caricatures. Amusing and bright, her story is liberally infused with mad flights of small town southern fancy - set within a nice little mystery.

    Hmmm, I never give up on books, but this one was a huge let down, hard going, annoying narration and a unbelievably poor plot, i really could not recommend this book to anyone other than the brain dead. If you buy it, good luck, you will need it!
