Audio Version Adds Texture
The audio version certainly added a layer of texture to it.
The whole book is a fast-paced, edge of your seat, thriller. It wasn't hard to stay tuned for the whole two+ hours. I listened to it during my commute to work.
Where we find that Henry (more than likely) has a history with weapons.
The killings were shockers.
Henry Fields is a man with a past, looking to disappear into a place where no one knows him. Unfortunately for him, small town Iowa is not about to cooperate -- perhaps out of scorn for strangers or the past that doesn't want to leave him alone. Despite all the goodwill of the folks of Gable, Henry is thrust into a nasty situation with only his wits to save him.
The smooth voice narration of Brad Carl adds a palpable layer to this already fantastic book. As an ex-radio personality, Brad is the the consummate professional. Most folks might be turned off by the thought of the author reading their own work as the productions often turn out to sound "tinny" or "airy", but this was, without a doubt, recorded in a professional sound studio. Superb sound quality!
Brad Carl, an Iowa native, knows his world and characters first-hand, and thus they are a realistic extension of his knowledge. Fantastic world-building and characterization lead you through this work. They create a place as realistic as any movie screen without the dogged stereotypes that Hollywood or non-native writers might attach.
