Description

THE BALLAD OF FRANKIE SILVER by Sharyn McCrumb (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).

Spencer Arrowood was a young, untried deputy sheriff when his testimony helped convict a youth for the brutal slaying of two hikers. Now, twenty years later, Spencer receives an invitation to the execution. But time has eroded Spencer’s certainty of guilt and raised the specter of another murder committed more than a hundred years earlier.

Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.

NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s Earphones® Award-winning narrator, C.M. Hébert. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.

“Hebert’s reading is an exemplar of how an audio rendition of a novel can offer added value to a work….Well written, well developed and well told….” (Kliatt)

Spencer Arrowood was a young, untried deputy sheriff when his testimony helped convict a Tennessee youth for the brutal slaying of two hikers along the Appalachian Trail. Now, twenty years later, a date has finally been set for Fate Harkryder's execution. But time has eroded Spencer’s moral certainty of Fate's guilt and raised the specter of another murder committed more than a hundred years earlier.

In 1833, Frankie Silver became the first woman in North Carolina to be hanged for murder. But what really happened so long ago becomes an obsession for Spencer Arrowood as the parallels between Frankie and Fate mount. Suddenly, Spencer is engaged in a race against time to keep history from happening all over again, and to save the life of a man who just may be innocent after all.
