Sometimes the best thing a narrator can do is just get out of the way of the story. Robert Fass does just that with this tale of stunning forensic fakery in the criminal justice system. The audiobook is a deeply reported story of two men, Steven Hayne and Michael West, who teamed up in Mississippi to practice bad science that led to multiple bad convictions. With limited dialogue, Fass must keep listeners’ attention, and he does, for the most part. Fass’s delivery is measured, steady, and varied with slight pauses. While some listeners might feel his performance could use a bit more oomph occasionally, his overall narration quietly meets the audiobook’s structural challenge and keeps listeners engaged.
