Justin Pitre was born and raised on his grandfather's Louisiana bayou, and he has made a promise to keep his family's prized 500-acre property safe. But across town, Big-Tex oil bigwig Tom Huff and his company have major plans to cash in on the resources that lie below the bayou.

Very enjoyable listen

This was a bit of a happy surprise for me; I bought the book because I needed to use up a credit before I lost it, and I generally enjoy Dick Hill's narration.

The story itself is a bit thin, as is character development, but the book as a whole just...works.

I liked all of the characters, even the evil ones, and enjoyed the setting and the story a great deal.

I've listened to the book three times since I bought it last year, and that's kind of my litmus test for 4 or more stars; the more times I listen to it, the more stars it gets.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
