Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Michael Boatman

Mystery & Suspense • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

With his amazing portfolio of voices, Michael Boatman draws listeners into PI Easy Rawlins's world in 1970s Los Angeles. Mosley's writing paired with Boatman's narration once again delivers a sociological tableau that keeps listeners engaged throughout. Rawlins accepts a missing-person case from his client, the alluring Amethystine Stoller As Rawlins's attempts to find her open a Pandora's box of corruption in the LAPD, listeners get a window onto Easy's backstory: He grew up a poor Black boy in the Fifth Ward of Houston and then fought in WWII. Boatman skillfully portrays a myriad of characters, smoothly distinguishing genders, ages, and backgrounds and creating the illusion of a full-cast performance. The result is an engaging and immersive listening experience. E.Q. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2024]
