The storm was
For the three years
Shadow spent in prison, all he wanted was to get back to the loving arms of his
wife and stay out of trouble for the rest of his life. But days before his
release, he learns that his wife has been killed in an accident, and his world
becomes a colder place.
On the plane ride
home to the funeral, Shadow meets a man who calls himself Mr. Wednesday, a
self-declared grifter who offers Shadow a job. Shadow, a man with nothing to
lose, accepts. But he soon learns that his role in Wednesday’s schemes will be
far more dangerous than he could have ever imagined.

Magnificently told, American Gods is a work of literary magic
that will haunt the listener long after it has been heard. Download and start listening now!
