Narrator Hillary Huber uses a slow, even pace and authoritative tone in her narration of this twisted true-crime story set in Alabama. What makes this audiobook even more engaging is that it is also a literary biography of TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD’s Harper Lee, who leaves an unfinished manuscript based on the incidents. That manuscript, THE REVEREND, was supposed to be similar to Truman Capote’s IN COLD BLOOD, a nonfiction novel, but Lee failed to capture the story. Huber allows both the tension and the anticipation of what might have been to color her delivery. This is likely not the book Lee would have written, but the strange twists and unbelievable outcome, and Huber’s steady and professional delivery, are a pleasure.
