Meanwhile, it seems as if evil is stalking March's family. An old nemesis comes looking for him and, frustrated in his search, takes Tucker hostage. March's sister, April, is also in peril after her workplace crush turns ugly and she unwittingly finds herself in harm's way, becoming the victim of an unspeakable crime.

Any additional comments?

These comments address the The Tucker Series, as of this writing four novels written by David Johnson. All of the unabridged audiobooks are narrated by Laural Merlington. Lengths vary from just under six hours to just over ten. I was introduced to the first book via an Audible Daily Deal and enjoyed the story enough to finish the entire series.

The stories center around the lead character, Tucker. Tucker is an elderly woman, a victim of child abuse, who has been saddled with the raising of her three grandchildren. The setting is a life of extreme poverty in rural Tennessee.

My initial reaction is positive with a few codicils. Working through all four novels became a bit tedious, many areas a bit too preachy for my taste .. especially in books three and four. The characters were also very teary, lots of crying and angst. For those squeamish of the topic, some terrible child abuse is vividly described. There are many instances that had me rolling my eyes … some situations and character behavior lacks credibility.

Reason I liked these stories? Character development and narration. David Johnson does a terrific job with the character of Tucker. I’m sure you’ll find other characters in the stories that are well developed and believable. Narration by Merlington is excellent … unique voices for all characters.

If you are interested in a familial tale, with character development exceptional, you will enjoy The Tucker Series.

If you’re turned off by books that are very preachy and loaded with christian values, these are not for you.

The Tucker series books should be read in order!

This is Book 4 in the Tucker Series. Almost 20 years have passed since Tucker's Way and Tucker's three grandchildren (August, March, and April) are now adults. This is March's book. We finally find out who his father is, and that he is a very bad man.

This is a superb novel that may deserve a 5 star rating, but it has a bit much religion for me. Nevertheless. March On does fill in some previously unknown aspects of March's life. This novel, like the others in the series, is classified as in the contemporary fiction genre; however, as a stand alone novel it fits better in the mystery/thriller category.

Narration is superb!

I recommend all books in the Tucker series.

Phenomenal series!!

Happened upon the first book in this series and have been enthralled right through the last. Gripping story and layered characters kept me coming back for more. Great read with a deeper message. I recommend this series to all.

Strange.

I really love the Tucker series and actually enjoy the strange combination of present-tense storytelling, Christian proselytizing, Hallmark sentimentality and shoot, shovel, and shut-up approach to dealing with Bad People. It shouldn't work, but it does. The fourth book, though, is more like some kind of strange, violent, Tucker fan-fic. There are certainly some scenes in previous books of extreme situations including killing and dismembering, but the graphic violence, discussion of pedophilia, incest, rape and murder are really in the forefront in this book. It reminds me of how Stephen King wrote some books under his own and even darker stuff under a pen name that almost had a life of its own. This book seems like "Tucker" as interpreted by someone who writes dark thrillers for a living. This in itself wouldn't necessarily both me overmuch but the story is also really implausible in a lot of places. It suffers from the same issues with unrealistic dialogue that the previous books suffer from. And there are coincidences that just stretch the reader's credulity to the breaking point. I feel it's also kind of doing a disservice to those who have followed the entire series to suddenly slap them with this kind of unexpected departure. Narration was great, though I may be biased as she also narrates my absolute favorite book in the world!

This is the fourth book in the series and I am really enjoying the storyline. I am a bit confused about the Bible verses that are quoted and the talk of "religious" content in juxtaposition with the explicitness of the intimate scenes between the main unmarried couple.

I’ll miss them!😪

I am very sad that this is the last book in the series of four books. The narrator is outstanding. I feel like I know each one of these characters intimately. I even find myself thinking about them as if they were real people when I am not reading the book. I hope David Johnson will continue to write of this family.

I almost didn't listen to this book because of the bad reviews. Yes some of the characters acted out of character for them and at times I wondered where the story was going, there were so many twists and turns. But overall it all came together in the end. Was this my favorite book of the series? The answer would be no. Am I glad that I listened to it? Yes. Once again the narrator has done an excellent job of bringing all the characters to life. I gave the book a 5 star rating, not because of the story itself (although it is enjoyable) but because of the excellent narration of the story.
