CRIME BEAT A Decade of Covering Cops and Killers

by | Read by Len Cariou, Nancy McKeon, Carl Franklin

Contemporary Culture • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2004

Bestselling mystery writer Connelly presents a collection of newspaper articles written when he was a crime reporter on the homicide beat in Florida and Los Angeles. Yes, this is simply 6 hours of a committee of readers reciting newspaper articles, word for word. Repetitions and re-introductions of key players are the norm. The material is not very interesting unless one has a fascination with Florida and Los Angeles killers and cops. Production quality is fine, although these readers are nothing stellar. Connelly mailed in this project, perhaps literally mailing the readers his old scrapbooks. Overall, the production is not worth one's time. Disc 5 contains some multimedia material, including an interview with the author. T.F. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 06]
