Mystery & Suspense • 11.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

André Holland gives voice to a gripping police procedural that takes place in 1948 but is relevant to today's world. Navigating Atlanta's tense race relations and police corruption, two of the city's first, and few, black police officers attempt to solve the murder of a young black woman. Listening to Holland's soothing reading will make listeners feel like they're walking Atlanta streets on a hot summer night. As the officers work to unravel the mystery--and whom they can trust--Holland's even pace and reassuring tone keep listeners engaged. DARKTOWN's realism and pertinence combined with Holland's expert narration create a compelling crime drama that speaks to hot-button issues we still face today.
