Private investigator Michael Kelly, a former Chicago cop, takes on what he believes is a simple domestic violence case that is really a grisly murder with roots in a decades-old political scandal, and the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. Stephen Hoye narrates in a vintage noir style to provide visceral shading to complex characters and events that lead to a stunning climax. Hoye expertly manages the large cast of characters—from members of two of Chicago's most eminent families, who conspire to eliminate Irish immigrants in the 1800s, to current politicos determined to frame Kelly for murder. Hoye's polished performance gives an authentic flavor to an intricate mystery. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2008]
