Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Narrator Edoardo Ballerini captures Porter’s intense, no-nonsense personality with gusto. He differentiates characters well and smoothly shifts between male and female voices. He uses a subtle yet intriguing tone for the descriptions of the streets of Chicago, which truly engage the listener in Porter’s investigation. Narrator Graham Winton brings the Four Monkey Killer’s diary to life. In a soft-spoken, polite manner he delivers entries that suggest the serial killer’s disturbing childhood and echo the twisted commands he hears inside his head.” AudioFile
