Riassunto: Carl Herbold enjoys being bad. After all, he is terrifyingly good at it. Stimulated by violence, he and his brother, Cecil, had easily graduated from juvenile delinquents to full-blown killers. And Carl, now serving a life sentence in an Arkansas penitentiary, carries out a daring escape with a fellow inmate and is on his way back to where he began--Blewer County, Texas.
Ann Corbett had been widowed right before her son was born. Beset by debt and personal tragedy, she faces the toughest challenge of her life--holding on to the ranch that is her son's birthright--unaware that she is at the center of Carl Herbold's vengeful plan. Ezzy Hardge is a retired lawman who is haunted by the one crime he sacrificed everything to solve, but could not. And Jack Sawyer, a seemingly easygoing cowboy and drifter whose past is shrouded in mystery, understands Herbold's twisted mind and his hate-filled lust for vengeance. Risking exposure of his own troubled past, Jack arrives at Anna Corbett's ranch asking for work, but in reality hoping to protect the innocent deaf woman and her young son from Herbold's rage.
Carl Herbold's prison break draws them inexorably toward a day of reckoning: Ezzy, an over-the-hill peace officer seeking redemption; Jack, a man stalked by dark secrets he can no longer outrun; and Anna, a beautiful woman locked in silence and self-imposed isolation. All must grapple with their own demons before their tumultuous confrontation with a diabolical killer.
Realistic, sharp-edged, and complex, Sandra Brown's latest work is so suspenseful it zings like a high-tension wire. Unspeakable, with its haunting images and breathtaking pace, is the best Sandra Brown yet.
Review: In Unspeakable, actor Gary Cole (In the Line of Fire, American Gothic) effectively drawls his way through Sandra Brown's latest sultry suspense. Using his natural voice throughout the story, Gary's exceptional acting skills and creative inflection bring an enlivened clarity to the characters. Recently escaped from prison, Carl Herbold heads for Texas to take his revenge on his stepfather, Delray Corbett, who had a hand in convicting him. Corbett fears Carl's reprisal will endanger the lives of his widowed daughter-in-law, Anna, and her small son David. The aging rancher finds an ally in Jack Sawyer, a mysterious drifter all too familiar with Carl's devious capabilities. Jack is drawn to Anna, and the deaf woman's silence speaks to his heart--a heart burdened with a painful secret that may keep the two apart. This superbly abridged audio packs the powerful punch of its author--all the way to a masterful end. (Running time: five hours, four cassettes) --Kate Breslin
