Description

Over 40 years ago, Stuart Woods found a battered chief-of-police badge in his grandmother's house. It had belonged to his grandfather, who had been shot in the line of duty. The story of the lawman's death inspired Woods to write Chiefs. This novel won an Edgar Award and was made into a popular TV miniseries. In 1919, Delano, Georgia appoints its first chief of police. Honest and hardworking, the new chief is puzzled when young men start to disappear. But his investigation is ended by the fatal blast from a shotgun. Delano's second chief-of-police is no hero, yet he is also disturbed by what he sees in the missing persons bulletins. In 1969, when Delano's third chief takes over, the unsolved disappearances still haunt the police files. As Stuart Woods' riveting tale spans three generations, Chiefs also probes deep into southern small town attitudes and behavior. The residents of Delano, and their reluctance to disturb a familiar social order, provide the perfect environment for this tale of dark secrets and murder.

reviews
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: This epic tale of the South spans fifty years, beginning with the appointment of the first police chief in Delano, Georgia, in 1919 and the first of a series of disappearances that will baffle police for half a century. Mark Hammer gives a slow, judicious impression to the story of Will Henry Lee's career as police chief, the long period of racial tensions, the election of Lee's son to governor and the appointment of the South's first black police chief, who ultimately solves the earlier disappearances. At times, Hammer's voice comes across as old and tired, and he gives little distinction to characters. But the homey wisdom of his voice, coupled with Woods's engaging story, makes this audiobook memorable. S.E.S. (c) AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine
