"We are of opinion that instead of letting books grow moldy behind an iron grating, far from the vulgar gaze, it is better to let them wear out by being read." - Jules Verne

Trouble Comes to Sorrow (#2) (audiobook) by Jack Bates
Published by Mind Wings Audio in 2012
Read by Joe Barrett
Duration: 1 hour, 9 minutes
The Adventures of Cal Haskell Continue
Cal Haskell is the main character of a western series with a twist. He is the new Sheriff of Sorrow, Michigan. Westerns, of course, should take place in the West. But, this is Michigan's frontier and there are plenty of similarities to make it work. I reviewed the first book in the series in December of 2012. You can read my review by clicking here.
Sorrow is a troubled town. Cal Haskell and his motley crew of deputies keep an eye on things but sometimes things get out of control. Just recently, a jury has quickly found a black man guilty of killing a white prostitute. But, Cal is told by one of the town's most respected citizens that the wrong man was convicted. Once Cal starts to look into it things start to get real dangerous. Clearly, someone does not want him to look into this and they are willing to do anything to keep their secrets hidden.
Be prepared, the story does not really end once you get to the end, this is just part one of a multi-part tale.
Joe Barrett's midwestern twang rings true while he voices this town full of characters. Men, women, old and young - they all come through with a distinctive voice.
Note: I received a free download of this audiobook from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
I rate this audiobook 4 stars out of 5.
The kindle format of this book can be found on Amazon.com here: Trouble Comes to Sorrow.
