Twelve years ago, Chester Morton disappeared from his hometown in New York, leaving no trace and never to be heard from again. For the past twelve years, his mother has kept the search for her son alive by hounding every law enforcement agency she can get to listen. Now, Chester's body is finally found-hanging from the very billboard that has been advertising his disappearance. Chester's corpse, however, is recent. Under pressure and with limited resources, the local police turn to Gregor Demarkian-a former FBI agent and a frequent consultant on such cases-to try and unravel the truth buried within this very complex and tragic case and find out once and for all what really happened all those years ago.

"FLOWERING JUDAS immediately grabs listeners with narrator David Colacci's achingly painful rendition of a grieving mother whose son disappeared 12 years earlier. Unable to let go, she still posts flyers around the community in the hope of finding her son, Chester. When his body is finally discovered, hanging from a town billboard, Former FBI Agent Gregor Demarkian is called in to help local police investigate. Law enforcement is stumped because Chester was only recently killed. Where had he been for 12 years? Colacci propels the story forward with briskly paced portrayals of diverse and timely characters, such as a college instructor who is living in her car. Despite Colacci's expert performance of Haddam's realistic dialogue, some listeners may wonder what happened to the neglected plot. J.T. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
