“Whether the story is set in the world of today or several hundred years ago, McCammon has the ability to set the stage with the reader, and engage them with compelling characters that are impossible to forget.”
Two confidence scam artists during the Great Depression decide to hit New Orleans and graduate to kidnapping and ransom. Across town, railroad worker Curtis Mayhew is one of those guys that has a knack for fixing arguments between friends … it just comes naturally to him. And sometimes, he hears things people don’t say aloud. Thing’s he’s not supposed to hear.
When he hears a little girl’s cry for help, Curtis is forced to go into action to save her. And he finds himself right in the middle of the terrible world of two desperate and dangerous men.
