Wow. What a disappointment. After listening to PALE HORSE COMING this was a huge letdown. It doesn't sound like as well-written a Hunter book as HORSE but it's hard to tell given how bad the reading is. The reader is so inappropriate for the material it's painful. Jay O. Sanders did such a masterful job with HORSE, I'd highly recommend it to anyone. Hunter is a very uneven writer. Better than most on his best day (DIRTY WHITE BOY is a must, even if it's not here on audio) but capable of being terribly average also. Bad enough this particular book is abridged...but on the other hand, maybe not given how painful the reading is.
A decent read but not the most exciting of Hunters. Still glad I listened to it however.
