Audiobooks have the uncanny ability to reveal every single flaw of a book. It's well read, with a great narrator, but . . . the biggest problem (other than the stilted dialogue and the showing not telling) is perhaps that there are too many characters and we get to sit in the head of absolutely everyone, which eliminates all intrigue from the story. I wouldn't normally be irked by this, but for the fact that it could easily be a really interesting mystery novel (the black and white morality prevents it from being much else). It's a legal whodunnit, but without the whodunnit, and the legal takes up like a fraction of the text so it's just a . . . thing

I love the way this story with its litany of characters comes together, especially toward the end. Very well written novel by author Margolin with some historical facts introduced. 10 of 10 stars
