"[A] fast-paced story, which includes an unforgettable prison riot, a vivid portrayal of bikers as both outcasts and outlaws, and poignant moments between Alexander and his child. This book is impossible to put down." (Library Journal)
This is a really good book. A little slow to start as the characters are being fleshed out but then it really takes off. This group of four not so nice motorcycle riders are convicted of rape which they technically didn't do but... They they weren't a gentle group. Anyway, the listener ends up rooting for their atty (who has his own demons to deal with) to win their case. Lots of political corruption is exposed and the bad/good guys are finally exonerated.
I've listened to David Colacci before and although he is not my favorite narrator he did a fine job.
If you can get through the first 2-3 hours it's certainly worth listening to. I enjoyed this very much and am happy with my purchase.
Great first novel from this author. I listened to this one back in '92 when it first came out and decided to listen to it again. I liked it then and still like it now. Yes, there is sex, violence, and all that comes with it, but what novel doesn't have that nowadays? This was one of the novels I couldn't stop listening to thanks to the excellent narration by David Collacci. All in all, I believe this one is worth using a credit on. Don't plan on stopping very long though if you have to leave for a break. This one is that good. A great legal thriller. This one is as good as they get.
Overall good but narrator doesn't understand New Mexico and apparently no one noticed. It is called MA-drid not ma-DRID, and all locals know that. But I love the NM location..
