My new audiobook narration has just appeared on the horizon. After a slight delay with various Amazon subsidiaries, Grind Joint, written by Dana King, is now available. You can get it on Amazon, Audible.com, and iTunes. Here’s part of the official description:
A new casino is opening in the rural town of Penns River, Pennsylvania but just where the money is coming from no one really knows. Is it Daniel Hecker, bringing hope to a mill town after years of plant closings? Or is the town’s salvation really an opening for Mike The Hook Mannarino’s Pittsburgh mob to move part of their action down state? Or could it be someone even worse?
In fact, the book is actually a penetrating tale of the struggle faced by natives and longtime residents of a small town near Pittsburgh as they cope with tough economic times. These are the people who make up the spine of America, and it is their values and desires which occupy the soul of this novel.
This is an exceptionally well-written book, with sharply-drawn characters and an appeal not limited to crime fiction fans. If the stars align properly, it could easily break author King out of the pack. If you’ve never listened to an audiobook before, but are considering it, try this one. You won’t be sorry.
