Publisher's Summary

It was hell's season, and the air smelled of burning children.... With "one of the most arresting first sentences in contemporary writing" (The Atlanta Journal-Constitution), Robert McCammon unfurls his visionary masterpiece of survival, redemption, and the astonishing transformations love can create. Gone South chronicles a desperate man's journey through a desperate land, in "a gothic picaresque that mixes gritty plot and black comedy...a smoothly constructed and satisfying story" (The Wall Street Journal). Flooded by memories, poisoned by Agent Orange, Dan Lambert kills a man in a moment of fear and fury - and changes his life forever.
Pursued by police and bounty hunters, Dan flees south toward the Louisiana bayous. In the swamplands he meets Arden Halliday, a young woman who bears the vivid burdens of her own past and who is searching for a legendary faith healer called the Bright Girl. Looking for simple kindness in a world that rarely shows it, bound by a loyalty stronger than love, Dan and Arden set off on a journey of relentless suspense and impassioned discovery...over dark, twisting waterways into the mysterious depths of the human heart.

Wonderful writing and a great performance

What did you love best about Gone South?

The writing was a breath of fresh air. I've had a run of real duds in the last six months. It was great to listen to Robert McCammon's writing. His characters are very believable, even the odd ones.

What about George Newbern’s performance did you like?

Amazing. I would say he's as good as Edoardo Ballerini from the Mathew Corbett books.

Going, Going, Gone

Sad to say, this was pretty boring.

A guy accidentally shoots a security guard and has to go on the run. Every time he reaches new destinations, crimes happen all around him despite being innocent.
