Narrator Adam Lazarre-White brings effective phrasing, a steady pace, and a fine, deep timbre to this audiobook about poverty, crime, and redemption. William Juneboy Outlaw III went from impoverished child to street hood to gang leader before he got popped for murder and sentenced to 85 years in prison. Like many violent young men packed off to the penitentiary, Outlaw changed as he grew older, turning into a more positive person. His prison sentence was reduced, he was released, and this Outlaw turned into an effective mentor and counselor of young people and the recently incarcerated. Lazarre-White's habit of inserting mini-pauses mid-sentence works to add emphasis. Some listeners may find his performance just a bit slow, but that's easily fixed via a change in playback speed.
