With this audiobook, listeners are immersed in the exotic environment of the Florida Everglades and the bizarre underworld of alligator poaching. John Pirhalla offers a first-rate narration. His facility with accents gives atmosphere to this true-crime work. He varies his tone, pitch, and cadence to good effect, and effectively handles both its hard-boiled police procedural aspects and the author's loving passages about the ecosystem at the center of the story. Rebecca Renner narrates the introduction to her nonfiction debut, offering insightful autobiographical notes. She also makes clear the distinction between poaching for survival and doing so for crass commercial purposes. But the publisher wisely chose to use Pirhalla for this largely male-dominated tale.
