Audible Editor Reviews

The Tangled Web is Michael Cain's absolutely fascinating story about his half-brother, Richard Cain, who is part cop and part mobster. After Richard's death, a confused Michael investigates his brother's complex life. The result is this audiobook that delves into the Windy City's history as a mob epicenter of bloodshed and violence. Clinton Wade's performance is cool and direct, a reflection of Chicago's wise guys. His pacing is unhurried so none of the gory facts are lost. For all Al Capone lovers, this honest look at the real-world mafia is unbeatable.

Publisher's Summary

The Tangled Web tells the dramatic story of detective Richard Cain's criminal career as revealed by his half-brother, Michael. Cain led a double-life—one as a well-known cop who led raids that landed on the front pages, and the other as a "made man" in one of Chicago's most notorious mob families. Eventually executed by shotgun, Dick Cain lived and died in a world of bloodshed and violence, leaving behind a story so outlandish that he has even been suspected of being involved in the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

    "Just not Enjoyable"
    What would have made The Tangled Web better?

    Another narrator. It had no inflection and even seemd like punctuation was ignored. If I had been told that the book was read by a computer, I would have believed it. I think it was an interesting story, but it was certainly lost in the delivery.


    What was most disappointing about Michael Cain’s story?

    The narrator.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Clinton Wade’s performances?

    No


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I think the story could have been great, but I couldn't get past the performance.
