Publisher's Summary

A stark tale of a crime of passion, Follow Me Down tells the story of Luther Eustis, a respectably religious Mississippi farmer, who runs off to a deserted island with a young girl and brutally kills her after a three-week idyll. Why? And what was there about Eustis that attracted the young girl in the first place? The explanation of Eustis' motives is tangled and far from obvious, and each narrator perceives and reveals only parts and facets of the truth. Bit by bit, the story emerges, with stunning dramatic impact.

First published in 1950, Follow Me Down continues to enjoy critical acclaim and wide readership.

©1950 Shelby Foote, Renewed 1978. Published by arrangement with RLR Associates, Ltd.; (P)2002 Blackstone Audiobooks

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. An everyday story but told in a very novel way. No suspense but rather a study in character.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The way it is told through the eyes of the killer, the victim, the wife of the killer and the defense attorney.


    What about Tom Parker’s performance did you like?

    His easy going manner and his knowledge of when to pause a second for the listener.


    If you could rename Follow Me Down, what would you call it?

    Any additional comments?

    This was my first Shelby Foote novel. I have read and listened to his Civil War histories and it is interesting to hear his work in a different genre.
