THE STRANGLER

by | Read by Stephen Hoye

Mystery & Suspense • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2007

Set in the early 1960s, this audiobook recounts the search for the Boston Strangler by focusing on three tangential characters, the Daley brothers. One brother is a cop on the take, one is a lawyer, and the third is a thief and gambler. All are dragged into the web of the serial killer. Stephen Hoye narrates in a subtle Boston accent. But abrupt changes of venue and character as the story progresses make the novel's scenes seem clipped. The abridgment's focus on the brothers as opposed to the Strangler takes away the listener's attention, and Hoye's slow pacing reflects a lack of tension.
