The story of Eliot Spitzer’s amazing, ultimately self-destructive, evolution from wealthy young man to New York State’s attorney general and then governor demonstrates the author’s impeccable research and powerful journalistic style. Narrator Arthur Morey provides a smooth, unadorned rendering of a complex story. Eventually, Morey fades to the background as the sad drama that leads to disgrace takes center stage. His workmanlike reading and measured pace present Spitzer as talented, ambitious, aggressive, and arrogantly flawed. Largely without salacious detail, the audiobook recounts the fascinating descent of a powerful public figure. As a coda, Ella Fitzgerald sings the Gershwins’ “Treat Me Rough,” a tongue-in-cheek treat. Listen for it! W.A.G. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2010]
