New York City, 1954. The Cold War is heating up, Senator Joe McCarthy is running a witch hunt for communists in America, the newly formed CIA is fighting a turf battle with the FBI to see who will be the primary United States intelligence agency, and the bodies of murdered young men are turning up all over the city.

What made the experience of listening to Night Life the most enjoyable?

Ideal combination of realistic engaging characters, a GREAT story line, unpredictable twists and turns along with a perfect narration.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Night Life?

Too many for one to stand out though especially enjoyed the cheeky dialogue and the amazing, detailed step back in time to the early 50's

What about Keith Szarabajka’s performance did you like?

Very well paced and effective variety of character voices that made a great book even more entertaining

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Really enjoyed the skilled "who done it" told in the context of an entertaining immersion in early 50's pop culture

Any additional comments?

I am a very tough grader but will give Night Life an A+ and hope there's another coming out soon !!!
