Elaine Viets is proof that non-professional doesn't necessarily mean un-professional. Listeners may be accustomed to the best audiobooks being read by polished theatrical voices. It takes only an utterance to recognize that Viets's voice is not that of a seasoned actor, but rather that of an expert storyteller. Listening to Viets read her own works is a delight, especially with a story as outrageous as her first novel, Backstab, in which newsroom politics collide with urban renovations and transvestite beauty pageants. It gets personal for the columnist turned sleuth when, after receiving a series of neo-Nazi hate letters, two of her closest friends are murdered.
