J. EDGAR HOOVER: THE MAN AND THE SECRETS

by | Read by Dick Estell

Biography & Memoir • 39 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1991

This negative biography shows FBI Director Hoover as an efficient, eccentric bureaucrat whose achievements were primarily administrative and who descended frequently into paranoia and blackmail. Dick Estell is like a familiar old shoe; we hear him daily on NPR's "Radio Reader," and his crisp, deliberate articulation is ideal for a political biography such as this. With no need to inject characterization, Estell gives each fact the emphasis it needs; his deep voice is neither judgmental nor bland. If you buy unabridged, buy this one.
