Publisher's Summary

The truth can be as deadly as any weapon.

Jaymee Ballard trusted only one person in Roselea, Mississippi with the secret of her lost daughter. When that person is brutally murdered, it leaves her with heartbreak and a slew of unanswered questions. The eerie similarity to a murder of one of Jaymee's close friends years ago causes her to realize her past has come back to haunt her and may cost her own life.

Years of deception and abuse leave Jaymee with few options and fewer allies. She turns to the widower of her friend - a man struggling with his own demons - to help her find her daughter and identify the killer before he strikes again.

Before all evidence, the truth - and Jaymee's daughter - are lost.

Tin God is an action packed romantic suspense/psychological thriller featuring a strong woman determined to find a demented serial killer and find justice for her child.

I did not expect to like it, but...

...Tin God is an excellent suspense mystery with superb narration. Author Stacy Green has the concept of unexpected plot twists down pat. It is a worthwhile listen.

Hypocrites and Dirty Tricks

Wow! Never expected this one to be so good! I love southern fiction, and this one is set in Mississippi, smack in the middle of the Bible belt . . . and sadly but truthfully, a place that is full of believers . . . and hypocrites galore. And just like in Tin God, they are not always easily identified by outward appearances. Jaymee Ballard gave up her baby girl to adoption several years ago, coerced by someone she trusted, when she was just seventeen. But she has never given up on finding her. Jaymee only told one person in Roselea, Mississippi about her daughter . . . now that person has been murdered. Four years earlier, Jaymee's best friend, Lana, who was trying to help Jaymee find her daughter, was also murdered. Are the two murders connected? As the search for the killer progresses, the little town of Roselea comes unraveled . . . and evil is found in unexpected places.

Exciting Murder Mystery! Too good to put down!

What made the experience of listening to Tin God the most enjoyable?

The story is outstanding! This is a novel that's impossible to put down. It's gripping right from the start and keeps the reader thinking trying to figure out who the murder is!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Tin God?

I think the revelations about Jaymee's past are intriguing. I can't list too many memorable moments without giving away some of the exciting plot twists in the story, but I can guarantee there are MANY great moments!

Have you listened to any of Johanna Fairview’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I haven't listened to Johanna Fairview before, but I really enjoyed her narration in Tin God. Her delivery was even with a good flow. She has a bit of a husky/southern accent which added character to the dialogue. I found her very easy to listen to and enjoyed the audio version as much as I enjoyed reading this in paperback.

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

Sometimes a small town can hide big secrets.

Any additional comments?

Sometimes a small town can hide big secrets, and taking on one of their "golden boys" can be a dangerous move. Jaymee, however, is willing to do whatever it takes to find her stolen daughter and Nick is willing to do the same to avenge his wife's murder. When more people start dying and more children are missing, it's up to Jaymee and Nick to solve the mystery or to die trying ...

This book was incredible from start to finish. The characters really blew me away with their depth and vulnerabilities and strengths. The chemistry, the heartache, the mystery, the suspense, and the surprises made this book impossible to put down.

Jaymee Ballard is a young waitress in a small town. Estranged from her family and abusive father, she works hard in the hopes of saving up enough to right some of the past mistakes in her life- including losing her daughter. Her plans fall apart when people she knows start dying and the secrets of her past can no longer be ignored.

Nick Samuels is a reporter that has buried himself in work over the past few years since his wife's death. Overcome with grief and guilt he hasn't been able to move on. When he receives a cryptic note in the mail reading "I just murdered your wife...again" he packs up and heads to Roselea, Mississippi to see what information he can find on the murderer. What he uncovers is a tangle of corruption and lies that goes much deeper than he could have imagined.

Riveting, exciting, with surprising twists, this is a book that will stick with the reader long after the final chapter.

Sweet southern mystery.

What did you love best about Tin God?

The lead character, Jaymee. Her situation seems hopeless, yet she is determined to do the impossible. Jaymee is strong and independent. We need more heroines like this.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

They mystery is a good one. The outcome is not easy to predict.

Have you listened to any of Johanna Fairview’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is the first performance I've ever heard of Johanna Fairview's. I felt she did very well. Her Southern accent felt authentic and not hit-you-over-the-head Southern. Her voice is rich and full of wisdom, and grit when necessary. She seems to thoroughly enjoy herself with the baddies in this book.

Although at first I felt her voice was too old for young Jaymee, I soon realized it was a perfect fit for a heroine who has been through so much life in too short a time. Jaymee is hard edges and cynicism. I feel Johanna captured that.

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

Yes. I can't elaborate because it would spoil plot points, but I'll put it this way. Jaymee makes a selfless and epic decision that few others would make in her position. It really touched me.

Any additional comments?

Stacy Green is quickly becoming one of my favorite indie authors.

Great Mystery

I love Stacy Green's Lucy Kendall series, so I thought I would try this series out. It started a little slower than I expected, but once it grabbed my attention I didn't want to stop listening to it! I thought I had it all figured it out, but there was still a little surprise for me at the end. This was a great mystery to listen to! The narrator did an excellent job with all of the different voices and the southern voices.

Keeps you guessing

Set in the South, the story line was is to relate to. Author did a great job of describing the people, their surroundings and feelings. You could get a good sense of all that was happening and see in your mind the scenes that were taking place.

Excellent

I don't rate too many novels with a five across the board but this one deserves it. I didn't want to stop listening to it. I was annoyed if interrupted. 😀. The narrator was perfect for the story. Wonderful!

Tin God

Good mystery, a bit convoluted, but what mystery that holds your attention is not? I liked the narration by Johanna Fairview. I read this with Kindle immersion, which meant I could read and listen, or just listen, and that helped me move through the story very quickly. I intend to read others in this series.

Holds its own with the heavyweights of the genre!

This is well outside of my normal genre. However, I have read the likes of Nora Roberts and Jodi Picoult as I try to hone my own "That Ghoul Ava " series and I will say now that this book holds its own against the heavyweights of the genre.

This is first and foremost a suspenseful drama. Yes, there is a "romance" element, but it is not forced. There are some twists and turns in it, and the ultimate climactic finale reveal of the "bad guy" was a shot to the gut. I am always amazed at how a writer can string in subtle clues along with the obvious misdirection that keeps the reader guessing.

Ms. Fairview was outstanding. Great voice and wonderful pacing throughout.
