With football a backdrop, two brothers struggle with their past as well as with a killer in their Ohio town. Robert Petkoff’s excellent narration shapes each character appropriately. He gives Kent, a football coach, a slightly softer tone than his brother Adam, a brooding, troubled man whose voice is a bit deeper and suggests he’s ready to lose his cool at any time. The distinction between the two is important because both are intrinsic to the dialogue and plot. Petkoff also is fine with the minor characters, especially the drunken mother of the murder victim. The narration and writing combine wonderfully, and the description of football is some of the best in fiction. M.B. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2012]
