Fiction • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

Reporter Camille Preaker is working for a third-rate Chicago newspaper when her editor sends her back to her hometown of Wind Gap, Missouri, to cover the murder and mutilation of a young girl. Ann Marie Lee delivers this first-person narrative in a sleepy, depressed-sounding tone that also sounds, at times, petulant or patronizing. Still, Lee's delivery builds tension with chilling undertones. This gripping novel is a foray into multiple generations of a deeply troubled family, and Camille herself is a young woman with a past. The descriptions of violence are truly unsettling and sinister. Warning: This novel may create images that are, even with time, difficult to forget.
