    Christopher J. Yates' cult hit Black Chalk introduced that rare writerly talent: a literary author who could create a plot with the intricacy of a brilliant mental puzzle and with absorbing characters. Yates' new audiobook does not disappoint. Grist Mill Road is a dark, twisted, and expertly plotted Rashomon-style tale. The year is 1982; the setting an Edenic hamlet some 90 miles north of New York City. There, three friends - Patrick, Matthew, and Hannah - are bound together by a terrible and seemingly senseless crime.

    It was only ever meant to be a game played by six best friends in their first year at Oxford University - a game of consequences, silly forfeits, and childish dares. But then the game changed: The stakes grew higher and the dares more personal and more humiliating, finally evolving into a vicious struggle with unpredictable and tragic results. Now, 14 years later, the remaining players must meet again for the final round. Who knows better than your best friends what would break you?

    Matthew and Hannah were just playing in the woods, a little way from home. But now he's tying Hannah to a tree. And she has never been so terrified. Patrick is there too, hidden, watching. He can't move. He can't take his eyes off Matthew's gun. Years later, in New York City, leading adult lives they never would have imagined, the three will meet again. With even more devastating consequences.
