This audiobook refutes a central tenet of urban living: that your neighbors won't respond you if you scream for help. Narrator Stephen Hoye has an animated voice, and he enthusiastically tackles the story of the Kitty Genovese murder in Queens in 1964. He keeps the story and its message flowing vigorously from beginning to end. He can sometimes go too far, though, becoming breathless and loud, which detracts from the listening experience. The facts of the Genovese murder are more complicated than the myth, and the central point seems to be that your neighbors will help, but they still might not save your life.
