Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Norbert Leo Butz, Heather Lind, Vincent Piazza

Fiction • 15 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

A trio of narrators deftly weave their voices to bring to life the breathtaking story of Anna Kerrigan; her father, Eddie; and the gangster Dexter Styles. Heather Lind's voice matures as Anna grows from a curious child into an ambitious woman who is fighting to become a diver for the Brooklyn Naval Yard during WWII. Anna's anger over her abandonment by her father guides her to Styles, made gruff and imposing by Vincent Piazza. Listeners learn Eddie's secrets through Norbert Leo Butz's steady narration, which shifts into despair and terror so suddenly that he will make you gasp aloud in shock. The promise and danger of the sea are central to this story, and Egan plumbs their depths as the narrators bring intensity to the characters' intertwined fates. E.E.C.
