Pete Banning was Clanton's favorite son, a returning war hero, the patriarch of a prominent family, a farmer, a father, a neighbor, and a faithful member of the Methodist church. Then one cool October morning in 1946, he rose early, drove into town, walked into the church, and calmly shot and killed the Reverend Dexter Bell.
The BEST I have listened to... thank you

Excellent narration, mediocre story
The narrator's storytelling was excellent - really engaging. The book itself started strong but got weaker and weaker as it progressed. I was hooked for roughly the first third to half of the story but it droned on too long to the point where I struggled to finish it.
