AudioFile - Jeanette Larson
It's Prohibition-era Detroit and the gangsters are running rum, knocking over gambling joints, and killing each other in their attempts to gain a larger chunk of territory. Their criminal exploits are chronicled by a jaded tabloid reporter Connie Minor who has seen it all: the murders, the graft, the political corruption. Occasionally Minor even finds himself to be an unwilling participant in the action. Estleman's writing perfectly captures the roughness of the times and characters, and his story is superbly brought to life by narrator Frank Muller. Using changes in tone, accent and pace, Muller capably and appropriately distinguishes the characters. A good story simply told and an outstanding production that provides high entertainment for listeners who like the genre. J.L. An AUDIOFILE Earphones Award winner ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine
