by | Read by C.M. Herbert

Mystery & Suspense • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1994

McCrumb is an extraordinary mystery writer. Along with producing a twisty plot, she writes lyrically of Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains, which she adores. Herbert enchants as she narrates this mythical story starring ancient and contemporary characters. Magic and superstition pervade life and language, all of which Herbert accurately represents as she tells the story of a 60-year-old escaped murderer; a college professor who is following the trail of a pioneer woman; and Hank the Yank, zany radio talk-show host. The story is enhanced by the narrator's ability to make these challenging characters come to life, giving the listener a REAL slice of Appalachia.
