From #1 New York Times bestselling award winning author Robert McCammon, a novel that Publishers Weekly calls “both a mystery that will satisfy the most finicky aficionado and a boisterous travelogue.”

Zephyr, Alabama, is an idyllic hometown for eleven-year-old Cory Mackenson—a place where monsters swim the river deep and friends are forever. Then, one cold spring morning, Cory and his father witness a car plunge into a lake—and a desperate rescue attempt brings his father face-to-face with a terrible vision of death that will haunt him forever.

As Cory struggles to understand his father’s pain, his eyes are slowly opened to the forces of good and evil that are manifested in Zephyr. From an ancient, mystical woman who can hear the dead and bewitch the living, to a violent clan of moonshiners, Cory must confront the secrets that hide in the shadows of his hometown—for his father’s sanity and his own life hang in the balance.

“Boy’s Life” is one of the best books I have ever read! Great depiction of a southern town with a touch of magic, murder, bigotry, and redemption.

So wonderfully enjoyable... I am 48 and I now ride my bike like a 12 year old boy!

A great story with true artistry in pairing words and spinning a tale. The perfect choice of a narrator. Hated to have the book end. Finding the next enjoyable book feels like it will be a difficult follow up to this one. Highly recommend.

This was not only a wonderful story, but the narrator brought it to life beautifully. It was perhaps a bit longer than it needed to be but I found myself enjoying it so much I didn't want it to end anyway. It really is a modern day classic!
