All John Leonard Orr wanted to be was a policeman, but when he was turned down, he became a fireman in Glendale, California. In a perfect ironic twist, he was also one of the most prolific arsonists the United States has ever seen. Ken Howard narrates this sordid tale with a straightforward, tough, and aggressive voice. His diction is somewhat sloppy, but it works because this is true hard-boiled crime. His pacing is keen, and he keeps us interested through some technical court transcripts. The fact that this is a real event makes it that much more engrossing. R.I.G. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB / MAR 03]
