Publisher's Summary

Carl Herbold enjoys being bad. After all, he is terrifyingly good at it. Stimulated by violence, he and his brother, Cecil, had easily graduated from being juvenile delinquents to full-blown killers. And when Carl, serving a life sentence in an Arkansas penitentiary, carries out a daring escape with a fellow inmate, he heads back to where he began - Blewer County, Texas - and sets in motion events that will threaten and change lives forever. Anna Corbett had been widowed right before her son was born. Beset by debt and personal tragedy, she faces the toughest challenge of her life - holding on to the ranch that is her son's birthright - unaware that she is at the center of Carl Herbold's vengeful plan. Ezzy Hardge is a retired lawman who is haunted by the one crime he sacrificed everything to solve, but could not. And Jack Sawyer, a seemingly easygoing cowboy and drifter whose past is shrouded in mystery, understands Herbold's twisted mind and his hate-filled lust for vengeance. Risking exposure of his own troubled past, Jack arrives at Anna Corbett's ranch asking for work, but in reality hoping to protect the innocent deaf woman and her young son from Herbold's rage.
Carl Herbold's prison break draws them inexorably toward a day of reckoning: Ezzy, an over-the-hill peace officer seeking redemption; Jack, a man stalked by dark secrets he can no longer outrun; and Anna, a beautiful woman locked in silence and self-imposed isolation. All must grapple with their own demons before their tumultuous confrontation with a diabolical killer.

I enjoyed many of Sandra's books, but this one I found to be full of depressing, twisted situations and left me feeling that only evil wins in this book. The author has a morbid fascination for detail that is a put off in my opinion. The rape and murder of a 14yr old girl does not need to be expanded in detail. Why the author thinks this will be interesting for the reader is a "mystery" to me. Also the vulgarity in this book is over done. Most of the men in this book are portrayed as so low and disgusting that it leaves me to think this is only the author's view made evident. The narrator made the child out to be an annoying little brat with a whining voice that was almost too unbearable to hear. I probably won't buy any more of her books. I rate this selection a C+ only because I couldn't wait to hear the end where I expected justice to prevail in some sick sort of way. Uhhhhg!

Unspeakable - unbelievable!

Excellent book! It kept me on the edge of my seat. I couldn't wait to listen to it. John Henry Cox is a wonderful storyteller. Great voice! Although, I was able to guess some of what would happen, there were so many twists and turns at the end - it kept me guessing. 14 hours is worth it!
