A very good mysterious story

Haven't read Stuart Woods, I didn't know what to expect. What I got, was a very intriguing story of a guy somewhat in a crossroads of his life, finding whole new beginnings. This is a complex mystery with all sorts of threads being intermingled throughout, coming together with a rather unusual ending.
Our burnt out reporter/author finds himself in a lake community that holds all kinds of secrets with all kinds of mysterious characters, including a ghost. It's one of those books that keeps you listening with never a boring moment.
The narrator is very good at capturing the characters personalities.

Great entertainment!

Where to start... I love Woods' way of placing the reader into the story with great characters and methodical suspense building. The narrator, one of my favorites, is equally adept at drawing the listener in to the strange world of Georgia mountains. (Tom Stechschulte narrated No Country For Old Men, Cormac McCarthy's masterpiece, so well i can't imagine anyone alive or dead could match his performance.)

The mystery which unravels in the end is complicated and fascinating. Where it fell short for me was in the supernatural elements. It's like he had a great story, but decided he needed ghosts and other paranormal phenomena to make the pieces fit. Actually I found this element completely unnecessary and even distracting from a great story.

Nevertheless this is a wonderfully entertaining book by one of the better novelists of our day. An easy 4 stars!
