Mark Twain wrote: One frequently only finds out how really beautiful a really beautiful woman is after considerable acquaintance with her; and the rule applies to Niagara Falls, to majestic mountains, and to mosques - especially to mosques.

Whether it's working at his cousin's funeral home or tossing around the local riff raff at his favorite bar, Nathan Waymaker is a man who knows how to handle the bodies. A former Marine and Sheriff's deputy, Nathan has built a reputation in his small Southern town as a man who can help when all other avenues have been exhausted.
When a local minister with grandiose ambitions is found dead, Nathan is approached by his parishioners who feel the local police are dragging their feet with the investigation. What starts out as an easy payday soon descends into a maze of mayhem filled with wannabe gangsters, vicious crime lords, porn stars, crooked police officers, and a particularly treacherous preacher and his mysterious wife. Nathan must use all his varied skills and some of his wit to navigate the murky waters of small-town corruption even as dark secrets of his own threaten to come to the surface.
This is a pretty good story, although a bit more violent than truly necessary or realistic. The pacing builds the suspense, but none of the characters are particularly likable.
Chris DeFazio performs well enough, but the production is somewhat sloppy and unprofessional.
NOTE: I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
