NYPD Commissioner Kerik's personal story is interesting and inspiring. As a young man, he is often in trouble and even quits school. He gains a sense of purpose in the military and embarks on a career in law enforcement that culminates in his becoming commissioner. There's a secondary story line in this book: his desire to understand why his mother abandoned him and what led to her death. Ron McClarty's reading is good; his deep, tough voice sounds like what an NYPD officer should sound like. McClarty offers some excellent vocal characterizations, especially the voices of some of Kerik's colleagues in law enforcement. Be warned that not only do the voices sound like NYPD officers, but the strong language used does, as well. M.L.C. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 02]
