I spent my last six years of public school in La Porte, Texas, and this book was just like returning for a homecoming celebration. Loaded with local color from Laporte, Morgans Point, Baytown, and I cannot count the times I drove through San Jacinto battle grounds, by the Battleship Texas onto the Lynchburg Ferry....so many memories came rushing back while I listened to this book.
Alan Adelberg did a great narrative all the way through this book, he has a really calm, laid back, homespun story telling style that I found to be very comforting.
The story is somewhat typical of a lot of small rural texas towns from the 60's thru today, don't trust outsiders, and if they have different values or mannerisms then you really don't trust then, but local rednecks are able to sit on the fence and lean into dirty dealing but that's okay because they are charter members in the good ole boy system.
But the times they are a changing.
This book is a sort of texas heratige, history, courtroom drama, and with a little religion thrown for good measure. Oh almost forgot our hero is married, has a very good looking law partner, and an ex college lover, and is constantly trying to please them all.
I really enjoyed this one ....hope you like it as well.
