Summary

Accident or suicide? That's the simple question put to Inspector Michael Green when a derelict stranger falls to his death from an abandoned church tower in a quiet river village at the edge of his jurisdiction. But when the victim turns out be a long-lost son of a local farm family cursed in recent years by tragedy, madness, and death, Green begins to suspect something far more sinister is at work. Probing the family's past, he uncovers a toxic mix of rigid fundamentalism, teenage rebellion, and a family secret so horrific that 20 years later, someone is still desperate to prevent the truth from coming to light.

Must take prize for the most bizarre Irish accent

Any additional comments?

The story itself was brilliant but I was confused with the names of the brothers. I was very disappointed with the narration, particularly the most ridiculous and bizarre Irish accent I have ever heard!

This book is great introduction to a new author

This is the first book I have ever listened to by Barbara Fradkin. I think it is probably the first I've listened to that was set in Canada as well. The performance is enjoyable. I wanted to listen to more by this author after listening to this book.
