WEDGEWOOD GREY by John Aubrey Anderson (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).
"Great detail, intense scenes, and wonderful characters...[Anderson] knows how to create suspense and invoke emotion in the reader." (Library Review)
On a bleak night in April, 1960, evil is aroused. An innocent woman is attacked; Mose Washington confronts the mob with a shotgun, and people die. Now Mose is a fugitive. Missy and her husband rush home to find that the forces of darkness have been eagerly anticipating her return. So begins the second battle in the War at Cat Lake.

"Anderson is adept at leaving the reader hanging at the end of each chapter with intriguing portents of the next plot twist..." (Publishers Weekly)
