Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Ed McBain

Mystery & Suspense • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2000

McBain's fiftieth book about the 87th Precinct is as close as a crime novel gets to the Great American Novel, and the author's reading is as skillful and seamless as the writing. While listening to this story of an old man's hanging, seedy strip clubs, contract killers, date-rape drugs, and the elusive rights to an eighty-year-old musical, it's easy to forget that McBain is reading it. The dialects, humor and emotions--fear and anger of the inner city--all roll off his tongue with the professional ease of acknowledged performers of the trade. S.E.S. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 00]
