Publisher's Summary

A small-time hood tries to escape the family business in this powerful story of crime and drug abuse in rural America. The town of Sewardville, Kentucky, teeters on the edge of a violent abyss, overrun with methamphetamine and prescription drug abuse. The Slone family controls everything. Patriarch Walt Slone is the town's mayor and head of one of the largest crime syndicates in the eastern United States. His son metes out justice from behind his sheriff's badge, while his daughter handles all the numbers for the family business. Business for the Slones is good, too - at least until Walt orders his son-in-law, Boone, to kill his own brother. That becomes the first link in a chain of events that threatens not just the livelihood of all involved, but their lives as well. While the Slones move to strengthen their empire, Boone moves to break free and take his little daughter with him. Will he escape from one of America's most heartbroken regions, or will his dark past bury him forever in the place they call Sewerville?

    I liked and enjoyed this book - you don't read many about "Southern gangsters"! It seems to leave open the door to a next book, I'm looking forward to that. Good narrator

    Story
    "Well done crime mystery"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Sewerville to be better than the print version?

    I've read the book before. They are both good. The audio version adds good interpretation by the narrator.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The atmosphere of the town which is maybe the main character of the story.


    Which character – as performed by Kevin Clay – was your favorite?

    Boone Sumner


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Don't want to give away a spoiler, but after a stolen cargo shipment is discovered.

    A great audiobook- a powerful look at crime and drug abuse. It takes place in a small town in the Southern US, among corrupt officials and low-level thugs. The main character is one of those thugs, and he's looking for a way out of this life.

    I really liked the small town. The book is very well written. All the characters descriptions were completely defining. I'm definitely going to recommend.

    This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of AudiobookBoom dot com." I really enjoyed this book. Felt for Boone. It's a raw look at a place most people don't know about. It's an interesting book. I look forward to more from this author. Highly recommended

    I am an avid reader, and love to share my opinion on what I read... be prepared for an honest review, though.

    Would you listen to Sewerville again? Why?

    I'm not sure that I would reread Sewerville again; I had a hard time getting into the book, so I would probably hesitate to reread it again until I need or want another book to read.


    Would you recommend Sewerville to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would recommend Swerville to someone who like's the excitement of someone breaking free from a difficult family and situation. But to my friends? I doubt it, as I don't think any of my friends read things such as this.


    What does Kevin Clay bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I must admit that Kevin does bring ... a certain quality to the story, a good one at that. He does bring the characters to life.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No, sorry.


    Any additional comments?

    Just that I appreciate that I was able to listen to Sewerville ... thanks to audiblebook.
