Jade Wheeler and Ronald Peet narrate this multigenerational mystery about the unsolved murder of a Black carpenter in Birmingham, Alabama, in 1929. His granddaughter, Meghan McKenzie, an ambitious journalist for the DETROIT FREE PRESS, is determined to get the full story. Wheeler excels in her portrayal of a contemporary journalist, giving listeners a vivid sense of a woman who is fighting to discover the truth about a question that has eluded her family for generations. Peet portrays her grandfather, Robert Lee Harrington, his voice reflecting the ever present frustration and fear of a Black man in the segregated South. Together, they perform a timely novel about hidden violence against the Black community. V.B. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2023]
