JD joins AudioFile’s Michele Cobb to talk about his narration of this new mystery and Locke’s 2017 Best Audiobook winner, BLUEBIRD, BLUEBIRD. Both audiobooks are centered around Texas Ranger Darren Mathews, a man with a rocky marriage, a drinking problem, and a penchant for doing bad things for good reasons.
