After carrying out what they believed was their duty, the Klansmen felt they'd gotten away with what they did to John. But they didn't know the powers residing in those dark Delta woods.

Very Intense (RACISM)
It's been a while since listening to something made me physically ill. The beginning of this story is extremely difficult to listen to. In fact, I had to stop what I was doing (laundry) to sit down so that I could actually handle it. If you are sensitive to racism, this book is not for you (even though there is redemption involved). The bigotry and hate in this story is a real stain on the United States, really happened and still happens. It's truly and utterly horrifying.
That said, if you can get through the disgusting racists you will get to enjoy some really satisfying payback of the paranormal variety. And who doesn't like seeing a racist get what's coming to them?! The redemption almost outweighs the beginning but I am sensitive to this kind of thing and it really got to me for a few days. So, it's a great story but again, if you're sensitive to extreme racism I would avoid this book as it will make you hopping mad and (if you're like me) might worm it's way into your brain for too long and remind you how terrible people can be.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
