    Story
    (45)

    In 1963, with the city of Boston already terrified by a series of savage crimes known as the Boston Stranglings, a murder occurred in Belmont, just a few blocks from the house of Sebastian Junger's family, a murder that seemed to fit exactly the pattern of the Strangler. Roy Smith, a black man who had cleaned the victim's house that day, was convicted, but the terror of the Strangler continued.

    Ian says: "Marvellous history of early sixties America"
    "Chilling nonfiction, excellent narration."

    Story
    Would you listen to A Death in Belmont again? Why?

    I am a novelist but will soon attempt a foray into true-crime writing. I rarely listen to books more than once. This one would be an exception because it's so loaded with details and other paths to follow.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    There's nothing more compelling than the truth. This story is true and scary. I was very impressed with the amount of research and personal exploration the author undertook.


    Which character – as performed by Kevin Conway – was your favorite?

    De Salvo.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.
