This is a superb book on tape. The book is about one year in the Baltimore homicide division. It follows a few detectives as they go about their job.
The book is excellent, but the reader puts it over the top. He does a great job of imparting feeling to the characters and the story.
An excellent book, well worth the time.
The narration is acceptable, not great. If you like non-fiction, you will like this one.
A great, fun listen--this is truly a joy.
This book is dripping with sentimentality about the poor, proud people of the south. What poppycock.
None of the book's characters are interesting. They are 2D cut outs from an episode of the Waltons.
I couldn't get through the darn thing, and I have a two hour commute each day. I preferred listening to NPR to this book--which should give you an idea of how uninteresting this book is.
And, yes, I am from the south, and yes, I knew people like this guy, and no, I don't think it is an accurate picture of either the south or the pathetic hero of the book.
