Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by T. Ryder Smith

Mystery & Suspense • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

Undertaker Fenton Breece has a deeply dark and twisted pastime. When photographs of Fenton's fun are unearthed by Kenneth Tyler and his beautiful sister, Corrie, their botched extortion attempt pulls psychopath Granville Sutter into the mix--with deadly consequences. Narrator T. Ryder Smith produces guttural wheezes, gravelly growls, and whimsical Southern accents to create a grisly tableau reminiscent of the best of William Faulkner, the comic tragedy of Flannery O'Connor, and the most nerve-jangling of Stephen King. Novelist Gay creates a gothic universe characterized by classic Southern themes of love, revenge, and redemption. Smith portrays each character with dead-on realism. Gay proves himself the righteous heir to cloaks worn by the best Southern writers, and T. Ryder Smith delivers a masterpiece of macabre chills. R.O. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2008]
