Not gonna lie, I downloaded this from Audible due to the fact that Kevin Bacon is the narrator.

This is a dark little tale of a retired, recently widowed judge. He goes to his lake house and to his surprise, finds that certain trees special to him and his family, are getting choked off by invasive vines. That's all I'm going to say.

I've never heard of this author before, but I loved the creativity and originality of the story and will look for more of his works in the future.

Kevin Bacon nailed this performance, and I mean NAILED it! He was funny, he was surprised, he was irritated...all of these feelings of the main character are perfectly delivered to the listener.

This was a fully fleshed out story, it was short and funny and just a pleasure all the way around.

Highly recommended!
