Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Will Patton

Mystery & Suspense • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

Louisiana Sheriff’s Deputy Dave Robicheaux is still guilt-ridden for having failed to save Dallas Klein’s life in Florida twenty-five years earlier. When Dallas’s daughter appears, grown-up and gorgeous, and shows an interest in Dave’s best friend, hard-drinking, down-at-the-heels Clete Purcel, Dave becomes suspicious of her motives. Cons, scams, racial prejudice, dubious sexuality, drugs, and death take the lead in this fourteenth Robicheaux psychological suspense. Will Patton’s honeyed Louisiana drawl lures listeners into Robicheaux’s angst. Patton’s sweet talk creates some of the most sinister, clever women around, and he’s chilling as some of the iciest villains in popular fiction. James Lee Burke’s subtle character insights, gritty descriptions, and intricate plotting combine with Patton’s seductive performance to leave listeners longing for more. S.J.H.
