HARD REVOLUTION

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Charles Canada

Mystery & Suspense • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

George Pelecanos solidifies his status as one of the finest contemporary crime novelists. HARD REVOLUTION is the story of brothers Derek and Dennis Strange and their lives in Washington, D.C., at the time of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s, assassination. Derek is a rookie policeman, and Dennis is a Vietnam veteran who finds himself in a situation from which he cannot escape. Pelecanos's dialogue and plot are outstanding, and Charles Canada's narration is superb. He demonstrates a clear understanding of how to bring the written word alive through audio. Although the plot focuses on the Strange brothers, Canada's performance of aging cop Frank Vaughn and his renditions of King's speeches highlight a flawless performance. D.J.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 04]
