Quick Thoughts: This is a prequel to The Whistler which came out last year. I admit I love John Grisham’s earlier stuff but the new stuff has been hit/miss so I skipped The Whistler. Now I am going to pick it up. This reminded me a lot of his old style. I am hoping the main book holds up.
Narrated By Mark Deakins / Length: 54 mins
This isn’t my first time to listen to Mark (he also did The Maze Runner) but this was a very different type of narration. I really think he did a good job but this was too short to tell if the narration fit. There just wasn’t enough characters or story for me to say whether I would consider this a must listen. He does The Whistler though so I will let you know!!!
