Bootlegger's Daughter

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date
April 2004
9 hours 36 minutes
With a steamy Southern plot and a sassy new heroine, this Edgar Award winning novel debuts an exceptional new series. Attorney Deborah Knott is North Carolina's answer to V.I. Warshawski, a legal sleuth with a knack for sniffing out the most baffling crimes. Deborah has just done the unthinkable-entered the heated race for judge of old-boy-ruled Colleton County. The only female candidate, she's busy reeling in voters and giving campaign speeches. There couldn't be a worse time for Gayle Whitehead to beg Deborah to investigate the 18-year-old, unsolved murder of Gayle's mother, Janie. Gayle wants the busy attorney to poke around for any new clues the police may have missed all these years. Unlikely, thinks Deborah; until she discovers that not all the details of Janie's case made it out of confidential police files. Filled with the patter of Southern voices and populated with a cast of colorful characters, Bootlegger's Daughter expertly unwinds a funny, cunningly-crafted tale of mystery and deceit in North Carolina's backwoods.

I am really disliking this book. I'm a 1/3rd of the way into it and am struggling to make sense of it. I just cannot get into the rhythm of the story. It could be me, but I'm a reader who enjoys classics like Jane Austin and Conan-Doyle, and if can make sense of their work I should be able to make sense of a contemporary author.

This is an excellent series and excellent writing. I have gone through it twice and enjoyed it immeasurably. I have no interest in the South, but loved the family and life of the Deborah Knott. The author drew me in and I was hooked. Margaret Maron is one of the best writers out there and her mysteries are pretty intricate. CJ Critt does a wonderful job with the narration too.
