The tide quickly changes when Marlene befriends her beachside neighbor, Rose Wickham-Heeney, a northeastern aristocrat turned wife of West Virginia coal mine union leader Ralph "Red" Heeney. Soon after the fun-filled weeks of family barbecues and lazy afternoons with the Heeneys, the Karps discover that Rose, Red, and their daughter, Lizzie, have been brutally murdered back home in McCullensburg. Irresistible force meets immovable object when the West Virginia governor appoints Karp as special prosecutor to bring justice to the corrupt town, its union chieftain, and his band of merry tugs. Marlene joins Karp as he searches for the killers and works to save his own family from an evil that runs as deep as the mines that fuel it.

Now I remember why I loathe abridgements
The reader is excellent and delivers with a wry sense of humor. Tannebaum's excellent story, however, is hopelessly chopped to pieces. I kept listening out of a morbid sense of courosity to see if they were going to jump from the shotgunned brother and the girl locked in the coal mine to "And they lived happily ever after." If the author had actually used those words, they probably would have as well; otherwise the last third of the book is wrapped up in about ten minutes. Nevertheless, I gave it two stars because it is an excellent Tannenbaum story and what portions are included are read with style. Please do not reward Audible by purchasing this book.
