SHADOW COUNTRY A New Rendering of the Watson Legend

by | Read by Anthony Heald

Fiction • 39 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Oh, how lucky we are to live in an age in which three acclaimed novels—KILLING MISTER WATSON, LOST MAN’S RIVER, and BONE BY BONE—can be had in one publication. These literary touchstones, about the notorious life of Florida sugar planter E.J. Watson, were conceived as one novel but published as three, all celebrated as original and important. Now the author has reworked them extensively to combine them and make them even better. Anthony Heald so inhabits this work that it's difficult to imagine anyone else narrating it. He produces vivid characters with an elastic voice that elicits a multitude of emotions in the listener. Employing superb pacing, he uses the author's words to create a suspenseful atmosphere that keeps the listener engaged. And at 39 hours—that’s a feat.
