Description

A Gripping Saga of Suspense and Romance from the Pulitzer Prize-winning Author Edna Buchanan. A Dark and Lonely Place poses the question: can we change our destiny, or must our lives always end the same way? In Miami, Police Detective Sgt. John Ashley hunts a woman linked to a murdered millionaire and finds she is the girl who's haunted his dreams since childhood. A century ago on America's southern frontier, John Ashley's ancestor was wrongly accused of murder and went on the run with his sweetheart. The lovers became the most colorful, compelling, and heartbreaking figures in Florida's violent outlaw history. Can the present-day couple break the tragic cycle imprinted on their DNA? The two stories entwine in this compelling, suspenseful tale of past and present renegade lovers.

Professional reviews

"Buchanan's latest poses the question: Can we change our destiny? There are two stories with parallel settings--modern-day Miami and early-twentieth-century south Florida. Each story line features a man named John Ashley; each of them is well respected, loves a woman named Laura, and ends up on the lam. Narrator Robertson Dean does a credible job sorting through the wide variety of characters and their varied speech patterns. He's at his best providing vivid word pictures of the heroics of both John Ashleys on the run. This book's unique premise, remarkable characters, and historical background may capture the attention of most listeners, but some may find it challenging to remain fully engaged in the lives of both John Ashleys.
