NPR journalist Stacy Horn spotlights the NYPD Cold Case Squad and the detectives charged with investigating the nearly 9,000 unsolved murders in New York City between 1985 and 2004. Horn describes the cops as a squad of loners and misfits capable of thinking out of the box and details their evidence-gathering techniques. Eliza Foss narrates the chilling text with the intensity listeners might expect from a crime novel. Foss handles the drug-related torture/killing of a married couple, the vicious attack of a teenaged girl, the murder of a police officer, and the strangulation of a young woman with restraint and appropriate objectivity. Whether dealing with precinct politics or police procedures, Foss's reading of Horn's reporting is compelling. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 06/ JAN 07]
