From award-winning author Stephen Dobyns comes a sardonic yet chillingly suspenseful novel: The literary equivalent of a Richard Russo small-town tableau crossed with a Stephen King thriller. The Burn Palace is a darkly funny, twisted portrait of chaos and paranoia, with an impressive host of richly rendered, larger-than-life characters and a thrilling plot that will keep listeners guessing until the end.

Outside my box
This is not my usual genre, but I enjoyed the story mainly because of the narrator
who did such an outstanding job on several of Carl Hiassen's books. There is way too much information for me on all things supernatural and cremation, but the narration moves along at a rapid pace which kept my interest. I did try reading this on kindle and couldn't finish the sample, but the narrator really hooked me on finding out where this was going.
The action is told through multiple characters -- some more believable than others, but all totally interesting. Who can resist kids, dogs and hot romance? The plot seems somewhat contrived and, although often gruesome, still entertaining, and a good listen.
