It may be a reflection of our own unsettled times that so many recent audiobooks have featured rogues, pirates, swindlers, and other unprincipled figures in American history. Jay Gould, the most predatory of the notorious robber barons who flourished after the Civil War, raided railroads and built his fortune on ruthless stock market practices--many illegal today, others not. Feodor Chin's energetic and fully engaged narration steadies and enhances a history full of drama and propelled by the complicated personality of its protagonist--a familiar American type who mingles enterprise with greed. Chin's strong, supple delivery keeps the action moving while making clear the toll these rascals' shenanigans extracted from the public, and from enterprise itself.
