Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Steven Weber, Lawrence Wright [Note]

Fiction • 12.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

This scathing satire blows the lid off Texas politics, revealing the power that lobbyists have over politicians and how even the most well-intentioned can get caught in the meat grinder. Television and film actor Steven Weber is pitch-perfect as struggling ranch owner Sonny Lamb, who finds himself in the spotlight after he rescues a girl and her horse from a fire. Influence-peddler L.D. Sparks persuades Lamb to run for the Texas Legislature, but after the victory Lamb learns the true cost of Sparks's aid. Weber makes us love Lamb even as we watch him spiral into the abyss. Weber delivers the story with skill and wit, always from the hero's perspective. The work is a satire, but the political backbiting and dirty dealing sound authentic. M.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2023]
