by | Read by Campbell Scott

Mystery & Suspense • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1995

Miami Times journalist Ward James, along with his unscrupulous partner, Yardley Acheman, returns home to a Florida backwater to reopen the case of death-row murderer Hillary Van Wetter. But, as Ward's brother tells the tale, their investigation opens up strange truths and ambiguities. Campbell Scott's reading is outstanding. He differentiates a score of characters, from Hillary's redneck Uncle Tyree, to his seductive intended, Charlotte Bless, and maintains the undercurrent of mystery and violence throughout. But, perhaps because of the abridgment, the listener never really says, "Aha, I get it." J.H.L. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 95]
