Product description


''Read's plot crackles and pops, but her characters steal the show. This is sure to be loved by fans of comic mysteries, but don't be surprised if Tom Wolfe readers are equally smitten by Read's venomously witty portrait of a fallen WASP.'' --Booklist (starred review)

''Consistently delights. The author's sharp social commentary on everything from the idle rich to the environment adds to the pleasure.'' --Publishers Weekly

''A Field of Darkness is sheer joy, complete with cutting prose and gleefully off-kilter pop culture references.''

''(Audiobook Narrator) Huber portrays the main character's 'attitude' perfectly, reading with a wry wit and self-deprecating humor. Her voices match each individual's background, from Dare's husband's farm family to her own family's upper-crust snobbishness. Older teens and adults with a taste for a combination of mystery and humor will find both in this well-narrated novel.'' --Kliatt
