Narrator Jason Culp has a challenging job with this audiobook. There are lots of characters--good, bad, young, old, sexy, despicable--and Culp has to find appropriate voices for all. Some are hits, like that of Sheriff Bill Amos, and some are misses, like that of Thatcher Hutson, the young cowboy hero. His voices for some of the female characters are also not quite on target. The story is set in Texas in 1920, just as Prohibition has become law. Listeners will be drawn into the battle between the moonshiners and the Prohibitionists, with the law standing somewhere in between. Listeners will also hear of the tragic aftereffects of WWI on soldiers and their families. Drawn-out romantic tension, well-described settings, and plot twists keep listeners engaged.
