Emil Brod is a newly minted homicide detective in an unnamed bomb-damaged Eastern European city just after WWII. The Russians are in charge. Emil is assigned to solve a case that no one wants to touch. As he reveals a murder cover-up, he guides us through cold, dark streets; introduces us to desperate, determined people; and has us feel their ever-present fear. Ned Schmidtke’s deep, authoritative voice suits the story. He never gets in front of the action. Instead, he supports this atmospheric tale with well-paced, even reading and a few carefully chosen vocal mannerisms for the main characters. A moody, involving listen.
