Tessa Dalton's authoritative performance sets the tone of this book by television commentator and former congressional investigator Barbara Olson. Dalton's richly-textured voice and measured pace anchor Olson's shocking revelations about Hillary Rodham Clinton's complicity in her husband's wrongdoing, as well as the fallout from her pursuit of power. Peppered with tidbits about Clinton's early political ambitions, Olson uses countless interviews and Washington insider sources to build an unflattering picture of Clinton as a political radical seeking to encourage revolutionary change.
Television commentator and former congressional investigator Barbara Olson has conducted countless interviews and tapped sources of Washington insiders to reveal the real Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Sorry to say, this book was chock full of legalese and this made it a challenging read for me. The book required a level of attention that I was not expecting. While there is no doubt that Clinton's behavior is scandalous, I was simply not in the mood to listen to the endless legal explanations of her conduct.
I was very much surprised to read about how treacherous Hillary actually is when outed from behind her mask of moderation.
I have always had a less than favorable opinion of the Clintons but this expose of Hillary's desire for power at ANY cost was even shocking to me.
The narrator. I understand that it is hard to find a balance when reading books. There are those with no tone inflections that, despite a great book, tends to put the listener to sleep. Then there are narrators like this one, where everything is stressed as though what is being said is of great revelation even if all they are saying is "she was born on.." You get the feeling that there are 20 exclamation points at the end of every sentence. You start to find yourself rolling your eyes at ever drawn out word and every spike in tone.
I will not say no, as this could have just been a case of bad direction, but I will be weary in the future.
Narrators are a personal performance. The narrator ruined the audio-book for me. This does not mean the book itself was a bad one. I think the author makes some good points and her arguments are verifiable. However, until I read the actual book I cannot give this book a fair review on its content.
