Gallows in My Garden, The

Performed by:
Joe Barrett
#1 in Manny Moon

'The gallows in my garden, people say, Is new and neat and adequately tall. I tie the noose on in a knowing way As one that knots his necktie for a ball; But just as all the neighbors...on the wail... Are drawing a long breath to shout 'Hurray!' The strangest whim has seized me.... After all I think I will not hang myself today.'' - From G. K. Chesterton's 'A Ballade of Suicide' Young Donald Lawson was familiar with that poem...yet now his body hung dead on a crag. Murder or suicide, Manville Moon was already on the case, as bodyguard to Don's beautiful sister, Grace. For Grace's life was threatened, too. And to protect it Moon found himself crossing fists and guns with hired killers, and fencing desperately with Grace's friends, family, and fiancé, anyone of whom might have wanted to kill her.

Biography:
Joe Barrett has appeared in films and television, and in hundreds of television and radio commercials. He is a two-time Audie Award finalist and has won six Earphones Awards from AudioFile Magazine. That magazine said of Joe’s narration of John Irving’s A Prayer For Owen Meany: “This moving book comes across like a concerto in this audio version, with a soloist – Owen’s voice – rising from the background of an orchestral narration.” Joe is married to actor Andrea Wright. They have four great big children.
