I really liked this book. I found it truly chilling to be shown the inner workings of a disturbed mind. I found the characters fascinating, and the pacing of the story is slow, but intense and works well. This was the first book I have ever read by Jim Yoakum, but after reading this one, I don't think it will be the only one for long. I can't wait to read more by him. I listened to the Audible audio version of this book narrated by Alex Zonn (the first time listening to him), and his narration was INCREDIBLE. I really want to check out more stuff that he has done, too. His voice transports you to the era of the book, and he does a great job of giving everyone a unique voice. I highly recommend this book.

Set in the Great Depression era this story gives you a real feel of that time. From door to door salesmen, to gangsters, preachers and the start of the FBI; it is a small taste of history wrapped up in a tale of murder and displaced Christian values. The deep baritone of the narrator seemed to epitomize the era and the intonation he used for the characters voices suited them to a tee. Even though there was lots of people murdered in this story, I found the action was a little slow, I would have liked to have seen more intrigue and more of the Pyle's pursuit of psychotic salesmen. Having said that, I enjoyed this book, especially the somewhat different conclusion to the story. I received the audiobook at no cost and in exchange for an honest review.
