Award-winning author Joan Hess packs mayhem, outrageous characters, and hijinks into this rollicking mystery set in rural Arkansas. Beleaguered chief of police Arly Hanks has her hands full when modern technology moves into small town Maggody, bringing with it controversy and murder. Maggody's high school has a new computer lab. Folks are calling the internet the Devil's workshop, but the adult computer class is filling up. Soon friends are exchanging E-mail, and the preacher is posting sermon notes. But when some mighty unusual images flash across monitors--and a pretty computer student is found dead in an abandoned shack--the town demands Arly find the answers. With tempers flaring and rumors raging, it will take all of Arly's low-tech resourcefulness to find the cold-blooded killer. Narrator C.J. Critt's sense of timing hones the hilarity and keeps you guessing throughout.More

Yes. It was a little difficult to realize that the murder victim was a youngster, but as her character developed later in the book, it made it more palatable. As for the performer, she is excellent. She has her characters well developed, although Ruby B seems to have more of a Bronx accent than your local Arkansas dialect. Overall
I listen to these as I commute, so this would not be possible, but I certainly looked forward to each new listen.
