Description


Adam Chase has spent the last five years in New York City trying to erase his worst memories and the scorn and abandonment of his family. Then a phone call from his best friend awakens in him a torrent of emotion and pain. Having left North Carolina and its red soil for good, he never thought returning would be easy but being remembered as a murderer doesn't help much. Adam is beaten, accosted, and hostilely confronted by his family, including Grace, the young woman whose abandonment torments him still.

Then people start turning up dead.

Within this small Southern town, John Hart explores the lengths to which people will go for money, family, and pure greed and whether or not forgiveness is ever attainable.

Praise For…


"Southern writer John Hart's work has a lyrical quality that Scott Sowers narrates with a growling weariness...The combination of Hart and Sowers provides the perfect marriage of prose and voice.  Together they enable the book to transcend genre fiction and become something exceptional."- AudioFile, Earphones Award Winner  “Scott Sowers delivers a solid performance reading Hart’s powerful second novel…Hart writes with an intimate sense of melancholy and loss that Sowers resonates perfectly.  Using a low-key, Southern accent to good advantage, Sowers draws the listener into the story from the very beginning with his simple, earnest delivery, and holds them tight.” - Publishers Weekly  “An ambitious debut thriller...well spun...a gripping performance.”          —People on The King of Lies
 
“There hasn’t been a thriller as showily literate since Scott Turow came along.” —The New York Times
