WHAT IT WAS

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by JD Jackson

Mystery & Suspense • 6.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Derek Strange knows something's wrong when a woman hires him to track down a worthless ring, but his private detective business is slow, and the woman is hauntingly attractive. In Washington, D.C., in 1972, the air is rife with change, if not outright revolution, when Strange gets caught up in something big and dangerous. Author George Pelecanos writes with the same streetwise authenticity he brought to the HBO show “The Wire,” with memorable characters cut from the same cloth. Narrator JD Jackson’s characterizations are so spot-on that listeners will practically see the hookers, pimps, junkies, killers, and a particularly talented cop named Frank "Hound Dog" Vaughn. It's strong stuff, pure adrenaline. M.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2012]
