Gloria Mallette has been hailed as the queen of African-American suspense. She perfectly fuses mystery and human drama in this story of one family's attempt to come to grips with their son's murder. Cornell Womack delivers an emotionally packed presentation that fits this story. He elegantly shifts voices as he captures males and females of a wide-ranging variety of races, ages, and backgrounds. Both the narrative and the narrator's pace start slowly, but within minutes they draw the listener into this roller coaster of a tale about unimaginable loss. P.R.
