Evans first met New York State Police Senior Investigator James Horton in 1985, when Evans fingered Michael Falco, 26, as the brains behind their theft team - yet failed to mention that he'd murdered him. Then, two local jewelry dealers were killed. In 1997, Tim Rysedorph, 39, another old friend, went missing. Was Evans responsible? Horton launched a nationwide manhunt to uncover the truth.
For more than thirteen years, Evans and Horton maintained an odd relationship - part friendship, part manipulation - with Evans serving as a snitch while the tenacious investigator searched for the answers that would put him away. After Horton used Evans as a pawn to obtain a confession from a local killer, Evans led Horton in a final game of cat-and-mouse: a battle of wits that would culminate in the most shocking death of all.

When I pay for an audio book, I make great effort to listen to the entire thing. There have not been many books that I was unable to finish but this is one that I not only did not finish but did not get very far into before quitting.
Where do I begin? I love true crime stories so I felt that this audiobook had great promise. Boy, was I wrong! Not only is the book poorly written but the narration was even worse. Yuck!
This is the first time I've written a review, but I feel compelled to save others from wasting precious hours...
The story in this book might be interesting, but the writing and narration are tedious and dull. The author feels the need to give every detail of every conversation, real or imagined.
Well written and entertaining. I learned many interesting things. I plan to read it again, as well as new books by this author.
