Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Michael Boatman

Fiction • 23 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Dennis Lehane's epic story of one family in post-WWI Boston is truly a massive achievement. Young police officer Danny Coughlin, son of the police captain and aspiring local legend, goes undercover in the city's slums, where the Bolsheviks are waiting for a hero. Coughlin grows to understand the battles facing him and, with a little help from some eccentric characters, manages to stand up for what he truly believes in. Narrator Michael Boatman delivers a solid performance filled with the rich elements of the story itself—layered characters, moving dialogue, and a powerful message. Boatman never ceases to impress by diving head first into character and losing himself in the story, just as his listeners will surely do. L.B.
