Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Gildart Jackson

Mystery & Suspense • 17.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

Gildart Jackson gives just the right unobtrusive narration to Jo Nesbø’s stand-alone novel, a richly layered look into the human heart. Nesbø, known for his Harry Hole series, introduces Sonny Loftus, a 30-ish addict who is serving time in an Oslo prison for crimes he didn’t commit in exchange for a continuous supply of heroin. Twelve years into his sentence, Sonny learns the truth about the death of his father, a disgraced policeman. Sonny cleans up his drug habit, escapes from prison, and begins hunting down those responsible for destroying his father’s life. Jackson’s artistry offers soft-voiced women and men whose personalities live in their voices. Nesbø’s thrilling journey into Oslo’s criminal underground of drugs, human trafficking, and murder is nail-biting, thanks to Jackson’s insightful performance. S.J.H.
