As someone who lived in the valley between during the time period of these serial killers this book struck a chord with me. Add to that the fact that I worked in mental health and substance abuse at the time and lived in the general area of 7th street and Osborn. If you know Phoenix you know that fairly close to where several of the drive by killings occurred. At that time my girlfriend had two large dogs that I walked frequently. While listening to this audiobook I tried to remember if any the names of the victims were familiar; if any of them had been treated at any of the facilities I worked at in 12 years I worked in the valley. I also wondered if that light blue Camry had ever passed by me slowly while I walked the dogs.
Now for those who don't have any connection or history with these events I suppose that it depends on what you want to get from this selection. The audio lasts for only about five hours; the writing is spare and bare bones it has the feel and pacing of a crime reporter; not a novelist.Without my own personal connection with the events I don't know how much I would have enjoyed this book. Unless there is a personal connection you may need to be a fan of true crime to fully appreciate this one.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
I am going to read the book. The narrator is so bad it ruins the book.
Would you recommend The Naked Streets to your friends? Why or why not?
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Don Kline?
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Any additional comments?
Narrator couldn't pronounce names of cities correctly. Sounded as though he had never read through this book before reading it for publication. Even when he obviously stumbled over words it wasn't corrected.
