Publisher's Summary

Mississippi, 1964. John Turner, a young black man canvassing for votes in the Delta is pulled over by local police on a rural dusty road. After carrying out what they believed was their duty, the Klansmen felt they'd gotten away with what they did to John. But they didn't know the powers residing in those dark Delta woods.

    Story
    "Very Intense (RACISM)"
    Any additional comments?

    It's been a while since listening to something made me physically ill. The beginning of this story is extremely difficult to listen to. In fact, I had to stop what I was doing (laundry) to sit down so that I could actually handle it. If you are sensitive to racism, this book is not for you (even though there is redemption involved). The bigotry and hate in this story is a real stain on the United States, really happened and still happens. It's truly and utterly horrifying.

    That said, if you can get through the disgusting racists you will get to enjoy some really satisfying payback of the paranormal variety. And who doesn't like seeing a racist get what's coming to them?! The redemption almost outweighs the beginning but I am sensitive to this kind of thing and it really got to me for a few days. So, it's a great story but again, if you're sensitive to extreme racism I would avoid this book as it will make you hopping mad and (if you're like me) might worm it's way into your brain for too long and remind you how terrible people can be.

    "Lanmo"
    If you could sum up Lanmò in three words, what would they be?

    Racism, Voodoo, and Vengence


    Any additional comments?

    Sad to thing that such hate exists in our society. Really hard to listen to the torture and murder at the beginning of the book. I received this audiobook for free through Audiobook Boom for my unbiased review.

    Story
    "A dark story of a dark time"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes because it is a great yet gory and dark tale of a time and place where horrible injustices occurred yet there is a form of supernatural justice in the end. Steel yourself for the beginning of the story as it is disturbing. Once past that it is a mesmerizing story. The narration is on point for the story and performed exceptionally well. Somewhat bloody and real yet a must listen in my opinion. If you like horror and supernatural retribution you will not be able to stop listening.

    It was a dark, terrifying book that awakens us to the seriousness of racism. The narration was good. Not for the faint of heart.

    "Revenge"

    I really enjoyed this short creepy story. It contains gory torture that took place in the 60’s of a college student (John) by police (Klansman) then comes the supernatural payback ending which I loved. Highly recommend to anyone on who likes history and horror/gore. I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator. Thank You!
