Jill Wine-Banks's own voice passionately bookends her story about being the sole female Watergate prosecutor. Her timbre contrasts with the fuller voice of narrator Cassandra Campbell, who delivers the body of the audiobook, vividly capturing the White House scandal of nearly 50 years ago. Campbell's steady pace is appreciated as she sets the scene and describes the many players. A two-syllable "why" is drawn out during a courtroom scene, and Campbell's voice is especially high and girlish during a surprise. Campbell especially finds her groove once the author opens up about her belittling husband, when we hear a sigh of disappointment, a voice heavy with despair. In the epilogue Wine-Banks describes the happiness she eventually finds, as well as the worrying parallels between politics then and now.
