Description

Dr. Julie Walker wakes on a summer morning in San Francisco
to find a city in chaos. Today Californians are voting on a controversial
ballot initiative that will change history. With the future of the state and
the nation uncertain, the streets have erupted into violence.

Injured, Julie must make her way across the city by foot to
the Veterans Administration Hospital, where her sister, recently returned from
Afghanistan, is in labor. At the hospital a brutal scene is unfolding as a
man who shares an intimate past with Julie begins to take his revenge.
Throughout the ordeal Julie's estranged husband, desperate for reconciliation,
sends out coded messages from the radio station where he is the well-known
Voice of Midnight.

Five years in the making, Golden State is both a political thriller and a meditation on
marriage, love, and loyalty. Like The
Year of Fog
, it is a page-turner with a philosophical bent.

reviews
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Kathe Mazur's measured performance of this engrossing audiobook is understated to the point of being languid. Since the novel is set in California during a period inflamed by social unrest and an enraged stalker bent on revenge is on the loose, the laid-back narration may seem a risky artistic choice. However, Mazur's control makes the chilling moments--and there are many in this ingenious novel--even more gripping. Listeners follow Dr. Julie Walker as she shifts between present-day chaos and the events that preceded them. Mazur makes her a sympathetic character whose familial, professional, and romantic relationships are too intense to switch off. A fantastic performance. L.B.F.
