Publisher's Summary

When Shaw McBride and Romeo Zderko drive into the small town of Brunswick, Georgia, their only thought is to fix their car's leaky right tire and continue on to Key West, Florida, away from their dead-end jobs as computer technicians in Ohio.

But when Shaw discovers that the $318 million Georgia State Lottery has just been claimed by an ordinary Georgia family, he sees an opportunity - he and Romeo will blackmail the Boatwright family for half their winnings and ditch their deadbeat lives for good.

Disguised as a state lottery representative, Shaw enters the Boatwright's home and holds the family hostage, while Romeo patrols the town, staking out the homes of the family's loved ones, should the Boatwrights refuse to comply with their demands. But Shaw isn't your average criminal out to make a quick buck. Instead, he has a grand messianic vision and he'll stop at nothing to see it through -- and soon, the Boatwrights find themselves living a Flannery O'Connor American nightmare from which they can't properly awaken.

At once frightening, comic, and suspenseful, Ravens is a wholly original and utterly compelling novel from one of our most talented writers.

    Story
    "Simple and Enjoyable"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I got this based on a recommendation by Stephen King from an article I found, it was one of his picks for book of the year. It was simple easy listening, which is what I'm looking for in a book like this, entertaining right untill the end and the narrator's were great. Not for those looking for a happy fairy tail. I wouldn't put it on my book of this year list - sorry Mr King - but a very good listen none the less.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story moves quickly and keeps you wanting more, not a lot of dull moments.


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

    BE CARFULL WHAT YOU WISH FOR!

    "Had potential"

    The premise has great potential, but the ending was disappointing.
