Mystery & Suspense • 17.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1981

This epic tale of the South spans fifty years, beginning with the appointment of the first police chief in Delano, Georgia, in 1919 and the first of a series of disappearances that will baffle police for half a century. Mark Hammer gives a slow, judicious impression to the story of Will Henry Lee's career as police chief, the long period of racial tensions, the election of Lee's son to governor and the appointment of the South's first black police chief, who ultimately solves the earlier disappearances. At times, Hammer's voice comes across as old and tired, and he gives little distinction to characters. But the homey wisdom of his voice, coupled with Woods's engaging story, makes this audiobook memorable. S.E.S. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 00]
