    This is the riveting account of one of the first Americans to spy for Joseph Stalin. A brilliant Columbia University graduate, Isaiah Oggins went to Berlin to establish a safe house and spy for his country - but he turned coat. Working for the Soviets, he was nevertheless poisoned in 1947 on Stalin's orders. Classified for decades, Oggins' story is a cloak-and-dagger tale to rival the best novels.

    Overall

    This book will not necessarily keep you spellbound with suspense (after all, the ending is given away in the book summary), but it is very interesting and offers a detailed political look at the 1920s and 1930s, both in personal, US, and international terms. Well worth the listen. The narrator is easy to listen to also.

    For LAPD homicide cop Harry Bosch - hero, maverick, nighthawk - the body in the drainpipe at Mulholland Dam is more than another anonymous statistic. This one is personal. The dead man, Billy Meadows, was a fellow Vietnam "tunnel rat" who fought side by side with him in a nightmare underground war that brought them to the depths of hell.

    "Could not stop "reading""
    Overall

    This was a very good detective mystery -- it kept me riveted to the end, even though there were a few cliches (such as the detective getting involved with the female FBI agent he is paired with). But I had a hard time pulling myself away from my Zune to get something done around the house while I still had some of "The Black Echo" left to listen to.

    The descriptive text made this story very easy to visualize and the reader's voice was easy to listen to.

    The characters were realistic and so were the conversations.
