TRUE STORY Murder, Memoir, Mea Culpa

by | Read by Michael Finkel

Mystery & Suspense • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

In this nightmare of identity theft, Oregon mass murderer Chris Longo (he killed his wife and children) escapes to Mexico where he assumes the identity of his favorite journalist, Michael Finkel, fired from THE NEW YORK TIMES MAGAZINE for falsifying facts in an article. After Longo is recaptured and jailed, Finkel gets in touch with him and begins a bizarre relationship. Finkel, as narrator, is matchless, telling all (both his story and Longo's) in an intimate, confidential voice, exposing himself and the killer as a mysterious, egocentric, and not always believable duo. Sometimes the explicit explanations slow the tempo, but Finkel manages to drive the story to a compelling climax. M.T.B. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 05/ JAN 06]
