What made the experience of listening to A Little Death in Dixie the most enjoyable?
I read this book in print form and loved it. I wanted to see how it translated into audio. I have to say I actually enjoyed it better in audio than in print. I lived in Memphis several years ago, and the story is so Memphis that I felt as if I was back there.
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
The book is very Southern gothic, along the lines of James Lee Burke. The story builds in layers, introducing you to characters you love and characters you love to hate, and it has enough twists and turns to keep you guessing until the end.
What about Jeffrey Kafer’s performance did you like?
I was worried that a reader wouldn't be able to pick up on the nuances that are so very much Memphis. Jeffrey Kafer did such a great job that I found myself unable to turn off the book, even though I already knew the plot. I'd definitely listen to other books read by this reader.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
No one is really who you think they are.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
This is a story set in the South. The narrator should have had a southern accent. An editor/author should have told him how to pronounce Tunica, Poplar, etc. He mispronounced many other words as well. I did not like the roughness of his voice. The story did not lend itself to that kind of characterization.
What was most disappointing about Lisa Turner’s story?
I mostly chose it because it was set in Memphis where I've lived for 30+ years. It's always fun to know the settings. I might have enjoyed the story itself more if I had like the reader.
