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.
