Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Stanley Tucci

Mystery & Suspense • 3 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1934

Moody, sexy, dark, and criminal, this noir classic takes on new life as Stanley Tucci embodies drifter Frank Chambers and the rest of the sordid cast of Cain’s famed novel. Cain’s terse, muscular prose and gift for dialogue spring off the page as Tucci effortlessly personifies Chambers’s narrative voice and amoral, if not immoral, life and times. Tucci chillingly, even blandly, communicates Chambers’s casually brutal passions and schemes as he cons his way through a tragedy cast in 1930s’ California. As one would expect, the story leads to a violent, degrading climax and not a few surprises. Preserve a place on your bookshelf for this audiobook--you’ll want to listen to it more than once. D.J.B.
