Adam Jordan wrote the best and worst articles of his journalistic career on the same day. The worst was bad enough to get him fired - but the best landed him a new job, penning lurid articles for Real Detective magazine, one of the last of the true-crime pulps.
Only the case they've got him working on, involving a beauty pageant contestant found dead on an Atlantic City beach, is one some very powerful men would rather see covered up than covered. And if Adam keeps digging, he may find he's digging his own grave....
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
Nothing, simply could not get into this book
What do you think your next listen will be?
Looking forward to Harlan Coben, Six Years
How could the performance have been better?
No problem with the performance or story that I can point out as "this" was the thing that turned me off. Just could not get past first half no matter how many times I tried.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Not for me
Any additional comments?
I am a big fan of Noir and thought this might be a fit
