Listener Opinions

    " melancholic mystery - I like it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 stan | 11/28/2012

    " Sallis is an unsung genius of crime writing he creates vivid images in very few words and his taut, pared down prose is distinctive and powerful "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Kues | 11/11/2012

    " A quick satisfying read, another in his Turner series. Sometimes I am a little lost in his dialog but usually find my way. His characters are likable and the storyline is believable. He jumps around in time, and you have to wait go with the flow and it eventually makes sense. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robert | 10/26/2012

    " I thought this was the weakest of the series. It seemed that the main character, as well as the author, were just drifting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 1/26/2012

    " Thought this was about our Salt River but no it was one near Memphis. Strange story set in a small town full of dark secrets. Not my kind of mystery thoug some of the characters were interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel Nowakowski | 11/19/2011

    " All the plaudits and great reviews that I read in the front of this book are true. This is one pared down, thoughtful and evocative writer. He can say so much with so few words, but he imbues them with so much feeling and power. I am eager to read his other books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 nick | 4/21/2011

    " Turner is kind of the emo Parker. First book is the best. This one, the last, is the second best. (Middle one kind of goes off the rails.) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janet | 2/12/2011

    " Written very poetically--to the point where sometimes it was extremely hard to figure out what was happening. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 1/7/2011

    " This book was somewhat of a disappointment. I really enjoyed the first two books in this series. This one lacked something I haven't been able to put my finger on. It's a really short read though, 147 pages. Still worth it to finish the series. "
