This superb, suspenseful novel formed the basis of the only film ever directed by Charles Laughton, a cult classic starring Robert Mitchum, Lillian Gish, and Shelly Winters. During the Depression, a psychopath masquerading as an itinerant preacher, begins a ruthless quest for ill-gotten loot, the whereabouts of which are known only by the young son of a dead thief and his younger sister. Jeff Harding pulls out all the stops, fully-voicing the West Virginia characters and contributing a spooky grumble to the narration. At times he sends shivers up your spine; at other times he is melodramatic, bathetic, or unintentionally funny. He is, however, never dull, and neither is this book.
