It’s 1964 in Zephyr, Alabama. It’s a simple life, for Cory Mackenson. Then one morning, while accompanying his father on his milk route, a car careens off the road and slowly sink into Saxon’s Lake. His father dives into the icy water to rescue the driver, and finds a beaten corpse, naked and handcuffed to the steering wheel. In time, the townsfolk seem to forget all about the unsolved murder. But Cory and his father can’t.
Robert McCammon has created a masterpiece in Boy’s Life. It is a fantastic story, with likeable characters, it transports you to small town life, which includes tragedy and murder. The audiobook is very well done and I can highly recommend it.
There really is nothing bad to say about this book, it is fantastic.
