Prohibition is a big headache for some—and a big payday for others, like the fearless entrepreneurs with little respect for the law of the land. With $125,000 worth of Kentucky’s finest homemade whiskey in his possession, big, hell-raising Son Martin counts himself among the latter. Son knows having this much illegal hooch makes him a very tasty target, but nobody’s going to steal it from him. War may be coming to his backyard, but Son’s not worried. Because when it comes to fighting, shooting, and keeping one step ahead of the Big Boys, he’s more than good—he’s bad … and dangerous … and deadly.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Narrator Mark Hammer sets the scene using a gravelly voice and an Ozark drawl for this rerelease of an early Leonard novel…Hammer’s greatest contribution comes from the lethargy he portrays as the men plot while partaking of their best product, sipped from dirty Mason jars.” 


Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Jacob | 5/9/2011

    " A fun read from Elmore Leonard about bootleggers in rural Kentucky in the 30s. Tightly plotted and suspenseful. One of my favorites of his. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Jandblock | 3/27/2011

    " Enjoyed it, Elmore Leonard was a good story teller. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Kit | 10/31/2010

    " A real Leonard gem. I'd also be willing to bet a reasonable amount of pocket change that Quentin Tarantino based a bit of the backstory for Brad Pitt's character in Inglorious Basterds on an amalgam of characters/events from this moonshine yarn. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Pf87 | 7/21/2010

    " Prohibition-era shenanigans in the South plus a mystery that keeps you guessing. Great cast of characters and short enough to breeze through in a weekend. "
