ABIDING DARKNESS The Black or White Chronicles, Book One

by | Read by Lillian Thayer

Mystery & Suspense • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

In ABIDING DARKNESS, the war between God and Satan is made real. The first novel in Anderson’s Black or White series is set in 1945 Mississippi, when the U.S. fought to free people overseas while struggling with racism on its own shores. Lillian Thayer is such a powerful narrator that she makes this a “driveway audiobook,” one that makes listeners not want to leave the car. She’s outstanding as 7-year-old Missy, a child the devil and his legions have targeted. Especially impressive is how expertly Thayer portrays the rest of the cast, including Missy’s friend Moses as well as the town bullies. Think born-again Stephen King and substitute devils for ghosts and monsters. This is a gripping piece of writing and narration. M.S. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 07]
