by | Read by Dick Hill

Fiction • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

This extraordinary story is based on the history of the real town of Phenix, Alabama, which—according to LOOK magazine in 1955—was the most corrupt city in America. Dick Hill lays on the Southern accents with a giant barbecue brush as ex-boxer and newly appointed sheriff Lamar Murphy sets out to clean up the town. Hill's gravelly growl causes sweat to pop out on your forehead and reddens the back of your neck. In their tone and rhythm, his accents and flowing descriptions are at times like music. This is a story filled with characters both fictional and real. The women are as hot and steamy as the weather, and the good guys are great. But the best characters by far are the villains of this "wicked city" where anything goes. R.O. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: ]
