G-MAN J. Edgar Hoover and the Making of the American Century

by | Read by Gabra Zackman

Biography & Memoir • 36.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

The female perspective of the author and the female voice of narrator Gabra Zackman are especially effective in discussing one of this past century's most admired male prototypes, the FBI G-man, and the five-decade reign of its controversial director, J. Edgar Hoover. A sensitive and experienced narrator, Zackman keeps a steady pace through the 36+ hours of an often-astonishing reexamination of legends and events. The narrative is crowded with names and frequently weighed down with summary and overview, but its burdens are lightened by Zackman's fine pacing and focused delivery. Whether the audiobook is presenting life in sleepy Washington a century ago or a fresh spin on the Hiss and Rosenberg cases, the career of J. Edgar Hoover has never been so thoroughly dissected, or its mysteries so fully unraveled. D.A.W. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2022]
