Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Michael Beck

Mystery & Suspense • 17.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

In true Grisham style, this audiobook has a rich historical background, which narrator Michael Beck weaves through its tale of deceit, betrayal, and murder. Two boys, Keith Rudy and Hugh Malco, grow up as friends in 1960s Biloxi, Mississippi. They remain friends until their teen years when Keith’s father becomes a well-known prosecutor and Hugh’s father becomes the biggest gangster in town. Beck’s narration brings the red-hot flavor of Mississippi culture to life for listeners. His Southern accent is deliciously warm and inviting, and every character he plays is distinct. He delivers humor with outstanding rhythm and timing. This is another expertly performed novel that Grisham fans won’t want to miss. E.E.S.
