I use my audio tapes to entertain myself during my daily three mile walk. I have never read anything by William Landay. I purchased because of the books best seller status, Landay is a new author for me, and I am a fan of courtroom thrillers. This courtroom drama was well crafted and verbally acted. It was told from the perspective of a father and the Assistant DA who is forced to be on the sidelines for the murder trial in defense of his only 14 year old son. His son is accused of killing in a brutal manner one of his classmates. The father and Assistant DA has a background of generations of male relatives who have been convicted of violent crimes. One of the plot lines is something call the killing gene. I do not want to give away the plot, but Landay does a good job keeping your interest. Let us just say I always looked forward to my walk to hear the next couple of chapters.
The narrator - the father. The story was told from his perspective. It was very interesting how he balanced his professional experience vs. his love of his son. His insights and emotional respones and those of his wife and his son's mother were interesting and quite surprising.
All of them. Grover Gardner is a talented vocal actor.
See the NY Times Best Seller Defending Jacob brought to the screen!
Great book. I can see why it is a bestseller.
I would recommend this audio for listening on long walks, exercising, etc. It is very entertaining with numerous plot twists.
The Racketeer was very entertaining. Grisham lets clues filter out slowly.
