MARKED FOR DEATH Dying for the Story in the World's Most Dangerous Places

by | Read by Byron Wagner

Contemporary Culture • 11.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

This book recounts the lives of seven journalists from across the globe—including Colombia, the Philippines, Bangladesh, Russia, and Iraq—who pursued their stories to the bitter end. Byron Wagner narrates with energy and emotion. Despite death threats and pleas from their families and loved ones to break off their investigations, these reporters continued to research their stories. Gould spoke with people who knew them, to their bosses, and even to their enemies. Wagner hints at different accents rather than actually performing them, offering subtle distinctions between people. His deep voice rises in pitch with anxiety or confusion—it even cracks at times. His expressive reading shows all the outrage, curiosity, and disbelief in the text.
