    A murder on Cape Cod. A rape in Palm Beach. All they have in common is the presence of one of America’s most beloved and influential families. But nobody is asking questions. Not the police. Not the prosecutors. And certainly not George Becket, a young lawyer toiling away in the basement of the Cape & Islands district attorney’s office....

    What would have made Crime of Privilege better?

    After 7 hours of listening...I gave up. As an audio book, it jumped around way too much...settings, chapter numbers, time. Too confusing even for uninterupted listening... which i never have. The narrator is not good. I didn't like his voice and found him somewhat irritating. While the book seems to have gotten good reviews, perhaps due to the similarity to the Kennedy's, it is a story that makes you not want to care about any aspect.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not anything read by stephen Hoye


    How could the performance have been better?

    I have doubts this makes the transfer to audio


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Boredom

    Leon Uris retums to the land of his acclaimed best-seller Exodus for an epic story of hate and love, vengeance and forgiveness. The Middle East is the powerful setting for this sweeping tale of a land where revenge is sacred and hatred noble. Where an Arab ruler tries to save his people from destruction but cannot save them from themselves. When violence spreads like a plague across the lands of Palestine - this is the time of The Haj.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    this book was recommended to me years ago, but was to large a task to attempt. Fortunately, Audible made it possible and it was worth every one of the 21+ hours. The narration was spot on and the story is one that everyone should read if you hope to have any understanding of the history and reasons behind the problems in the Middle East. the insight into the thinking of the Arab mind is spot on, and the tale is current even though it was written decades ago.

    He's a self-described beach bum who won his houseboat in a card game. He's also a knight errant who's wary of credit cards, retirement benefits, political parties, mortgages, and television. He only works when his cash runs out, and his rule is simple: he'll help you find whatever was taken from you, as long as he can keep half.
