In his debut release, former homicide detective Ken Lang transports you from your cozy, comfy chair to the cold, hard streets surrounding Baltimore, Maryland. Witness first-hand the vicious brutality that a human being can inflict onto another, search for that one piece of evidence needed to solidify a conviction, and desperately try to identify a shooting victim whose mangled and burnt body is found at a scene where no clues are left behind.
A revealing glimpse of the demanding life as a homicide detective, Ken Lang puts you right into the scene, reveals the evidence, and leads you through some of the most incredible death investigations you will ever experience. Walking among the Dead: True Stories from a Homicide Detective is a must listen for all true crime fans.

I've never "read" a book narrated by Mike Vendetti so I don't know if it was his style, or the way the words were presented to him, but listening to this book was difficult. The abrupt...cadence...that ended before sentences did...and started just as...abruptly...became frustrating.
The descriptions of the Baltimore underbelly and its crime was interesting. The needlessly flowery descriptions made me want to fast forward to the good parts.
The performance was terrible. The only improvement would be to get another person to re-read this book.
I was disappointed with this book. I've "read" many crime books and this was sub-par.
