Read by Will Patton.
The American West in the early 1960s appears to be a pastoral paradise: golden wheat fields, mist-filled canyons, frolicking animals. Aspiring novelist Aaron Holland Broussard has observed it from the open door of a boxcar, riding the rails for both inspiration and odd jobs. Jumping off in Denver, he finds work on a farm and meets Joanne McDuffy, an articulate and fierce college student and gifted painter. Their soul connection is immediate, but their romance is complicated by Joanne's involvement with a shady professor who is mixed up with a drug-addled cult. When a sinister businessman and his son who wield their influence through vicious cruelty set their sights on Aaron, drawing him into an investigation of grotesque murders, it is clear that this idyllic landscape harbors tremendous power, and evil. Followed by a mysterious shrouded figure who might not be human, Aaron will have to face down all these foes to save the life of the woman he loves and his own.

A migrant in the 1960s American West, Aaron Broussard has found temporary work as a farmhand near Denver. He finds himself entangled in local rivalries, serious crimes, and a love affair with a younger woman, his involvement with whom invites danger. Burke uses a familiar structure to tell a gripping and disturbing story and creates a fully realized world and characters. The hero of the audio production is, without a doubt, Will Patton. His skill at bringing these characters to life is such that, at times, it is hard to remember this is not a full cast recording. Some minor faults in mastering, such as noticeable whistling and sibilance, could be of note (to earbud or headphone listeners particularly). However, the production strikes a perfect tone for the material. Fans of the series will be eager for another entry as Patton and team more than make the audio version worth the listen.
