Mystery & Suspense • 16.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2001

The voice of Jonathan Maroz contains all the sorrow of the world, and no other performer could have read HALF-MOON AND EMPTY STARS as well as he. Maroz reads with slow, lingering cadences that swell with the pain Spence presents: the tragedy of any person trapped in the legal system; the tragedy of Native Americans, specifically the Arapaho of Wyoming in the mid-twentieth century; the tragedy of capital punishment; and the tragedy of small-town politics in league with relentlessly ambitious politicians on the rise. This book is not for the faint of heart, or for people who want a tidy packaged solution. It's for people who want to hear, learn, and grow in the understanding and wisdom that Spence is offering the reader and that Maroz is translating into the spoken word. M.D.H.
