Although a worthy topic for this well-researched historical fiction, Second Street Station seemed awkward to me. I was off-put by the "Bowler Hat..Show More »" and "Mustache" names and occasionally cringed at phrases such as one describing a man as eager as a dog in heat. Could I have misheard that? Hope so! Cassandra Campbell did a fine job with challenging material; like the book, however, her narration couldn't reduce the tension between melodrama and mystery.
