NEW YORKER staff writer Grann engages listeners with his insightful collection of articles about real-life "murder, madness, and obsession." Mark Deakins's composed narration style is the perfect complement. He masterfully guides listeners through these thoroughly researched stories, including the title story, featuring the murder of a Sherlock Holmes scholar, and stories about a French impostor, a giant squid hunter, the New York City underground tunnel system, the FBI, mobsters, and a heart-wrenching 9/11 story about a surviving firefighter from Engine Company 40. Throughout his narration, Deakins remains calm, poised, and articulate. His clear enunciation and smooth voice ensure that listeners will be captivated.
