An Excellent Tale

This book is a perfect blend of a good story and a great narrator. The description of the ravages of the 1900 Storm on Galveston are incredible. It’ll keep your ear glued to your listening device. I also found the final part of the book of particular interest because it is set at Spindletop near Beaumont. I grew up just down the road in Port Arthur and so I appreciated the local history. From murder most foul to a vengeful Mother Nature, this book has it all!
