Of the 70+ audiobooks that I have listened to, this is certainly one of the best. The writing is sharp, compelling and beautiful. Michael Boatman as narrator is superb. He "performs" the book, has a magnificent deep voice and can deliver any accent with perfection. The story, based in part on the 1919 Boston police strike, provides insights into the rise of the labour movement in the US as well as the challenges of life for workers, immigrants and African Americans during the post WW I period. How wonderful to learn while also enjoying a novel! Dennis Lehane has reached new heights in his writing...this is literature at its best.
