Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Will Patton

Mystery & Suspense • 7.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

James Lee Burke couldn't have a better narrator than Will Patton to lend his voice and skill to the story of 86-year-old Aaron Broussard, a novelist living in Montana who is trying to find justice in an unjust world. Patton's gruff but gentle voice tinged with the experiences of a hard life allows listeners to comprehend how Broussard deals with his complicated reality. He tries to make sense of a man either haunted by ghosts or in the throes of senility. Characters like state trooper and possible love interest Ruby Spotted Horse and the spirit of Broussard's only daughter, Fannie Mae, lend urgency to the tale. Broussard must figure out what to do to make things right, even settling a centuries-old massacre. This Holland family novel is a solid, somber work. M.S.
