Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Adequate, but not wildly impressive story of revenge, murder, and the deep South during the sixties. Another reviewer commented having trouble getting into this book, and I agree! Every time I put the book down for the first 40 pages or so, I had to reread the last page to recall the storyline. Not a promising start, although I did eventually finish the book. And the cover has diddley to do with the story.
