Description-

  • "Four distinct voices tell the story of a disturbing incident and its far-reaching aftermath...It's a labyrinth of shifting perspectives, but the narrators keep this grim story focused and mesmerizing." — AudioFile Magazine
    The highly anticipated new audiobook from the author whose debut was called "The smart summer thriller you've been waiting for...The novel you should be reading tonight" (NPR's All Things Considered) and was named a Book of the Year by NPR and an Entertainment Weekly Must-List Pick

    Christopher J. Yates's cult hit Black Chalk introduced that rare writerly talent: a literary author who could create a plot with the intricacy of a brilliant mental puzzle, and with characters so absorbing that listeners are immediately gripped. Yates's new audiobook does not disappoint.

    Grist Mill Road
    is a dark, twisted, and expertly plotted Rashomon-style tale. The year is 1982; the setting, an Edenic hamlet some ninety miles north of New York City. There, among the craggy rock cliffs and glacial ponds of timeworn mountains, three friends—Patrick, Matthew, and Hannah—are bound together by a terrible and seemingly senseless crime. Twenty-six years later, in New York City, living lives their younger selves never could have predicted, the three meet again—with even more devastating results.
    More praise for Grist Mill Road:
    "[Dan] Bittner, Will Damron, Graham Halstead, and Saskia Maarleveld bring the multidimensional characters vividly to life and narrate this complex and twisting tale of psychological suspense in a manner that keeps the listener involved and eager to follow along to its harrowing conclusion." — Booklist

About the Author-

  • CHRISTOPHER J. YATES was born and raised in Kent and studied law at Oxford University before working as a puzzle editor in London. He now lives in New York City with his wife and dog. 'Black Chalk' is his debut novel.

Reviews-

  • AudioFile Magazine Four distinct voices tell the story of a disturbing incident and its far-reaching aftermath. In 1982, teenager Matthew brutally assaulted Hannah with a BB gun while Patrick, frozen by indecision, just watched. Fast forward to 2008--Hannah is married to Patrick, though she doesn't remember that he witnessed the shooting. Then Matthew reenters their lives, triggering yet another descent into violence. Each adult character looks back retrospectively on 1982. Narrators Dan Bittner, Saskia Maarleveld, and Graham Halstead do a marvelous job delivering first-person accounts leading to the same terrible crime. Will Damron provides a taut narration of the 2008 events, which are told omnisciently in the third person. It's a labyrinth of shifting perspectives, but the narrators keep this grim story focused and mesmerizing. A.T.N. � AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine
