Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Will Patton

Mystery & Suspense • 14 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Let the joyous celebrations begin: James Lee Burke has published another Dave Robicheaux mystery. Perfectly portrayed by narrator Will Patton, Burke's shambling, tarnished knight and his trusty alter ego, Clete Purcell, stumble into the crooked dealings of a slick, ultrarich oilman and his country-crooner wife. A psychopath killer stalks this Eden of the Northwest, and it's up to Dave to put together all the pieces of the puzzle. Listeners’ ears will tingle as Dave watches chain lightning crackle and pop across the blue, blue sky. Patton wraps his voice around long passages of beautifully descriptive prose and insightful psychological analysis, keepin' it real while keepin' it smooth as Tennessee whiskey. R.O. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award, 2009 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2008]
