Howard Samuel lends a strong, somber tone to Michael Connelly's collection of articles written over his years as a crime journalist in Florida and Los Angeles. Connelly, bestselling author of the Harry Bosch mystery series, loses none of his novelist's expertise when introducing these true crime accounts. The collection, made up mostly of reprints of news stories, is especially well suited to audio. Connelly's humanity is the brush that colors each story, and Samuel's performance heightens that personal touch. His voice, sometimes gruff, sometimes graceful, is always engaging, making each account fascinating, touching, or sensational. His reading is hypnotic, demanding listener attention--and getting it.
