Robert McCammon is the New York Times bestselling author of fifteen novels, including the award-winning Boy's Life. There are more than four million copies of his books in print. Visit his website: www.robertmccammon.comFrom AudioFile:
An eleven-year-old is plunged into a world of mystery and evil after he and his father witness the disposal of a murder victim on the outskirts of their idylic Southern town. Richard Thomas's exquisite narration is clear and engaging, comforting the listener with a warm vocal presence before rising with the chill of heartfelt fear. His vocal characterizations--ranging from the innocent drawl of the young boy to the mystical lightness of an elderly African American woman--are effortlessly rendered with subtle skill. Each character is clearly drawn and fully felt, yet the narrative drive of McCammon's elegantly simple writing is never lost. C.T. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
