This was not a bad book, but the story was not my style. I agree with another reviewer that this story is more "noir" -- not so much "mystery / thriller". McKenzie is an excellent writer with interesting, quirky characters, and I listened to the end. I will absolutely try out his next book.
My desire when I started this book was a continuation of "Bad Country" which was one of my favorite "thriller whodunnit" books last year. My expectations are not fair to McKenzie, but I loved the main character in his first book, Rodeo Grace Garnet.
The narrator did a great job as I felt I was in Arkansas among a diverse group of characters.

After listening to C.B. McKenzie's first book, Bad Country, I was keeping an eye out for his next book. So when I saw Burn What Will Burn, I snapped it up.
I thought Burn What Will Burn was going to be mystery/thriller, but no -- it was more of a slightly-noire novel, and that's a good thing because mystery/thriller books tend to be formulaic, and BWWB was anything but formulaic.
Pros -- great prose, richly-construed characters, not predictable, excellent narration.
Cons -- I could have listened to a couple more hours of the book, but hey, when a story ends, it's over. ;-)
