Harper details the life and times of his father, trucker Jim Harper, as he clashed with Teamster leader Jimmy Hoffa and received death threats and repeated attempts on his life in the early 1960s. Told in remarkable detail, the story reveals unknown incidents and details relating to Hoffa, who was infamous for his iron rule of the Teamster’s Union—before he simply disappeared, the victim of foul play. Narrator Mort Crim reads with intensity and passion, his voice an echoing bass line that rivets from start to finish. Crim’s tone, not often found in today's narrators, is reminiscent of newscasters of the fifties and sixties. The story is presented matter-of-factly—despite the author’s personal involvement with the real-life protagonist. L.B. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 08]
