What a bore. As someone else mentioned there is no new information here. And the stories are way to fast to get any meaningful information. Its the equivelent of reading a short blurb in a newspaper column to get you back up to date by highlighting all of the essential information but leaves out the parts that would give more depth to the stories.

A Compendium of FBI top cases in U.S. history

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Top Cases of The FBI consists of twelve of the most notorious criminals cases involving the FBI, from crime families to events such as Waco Siege and Ruby Ridge (two of the more familiar 'black eyes' the FBI received because of the way they handled the situations).

The book is well written and researched. The narrator is very professionally spoken and telling the stories made it quite enticing. I highly recommend this audio format as it's not too long and compared to some of the prices I've seen, it's relatively inexpensive.

What about David Gilmore’s performance did you like?

Very well produced and most enticing. He reads at a good pace. I've downloaded others and some narrators reads slow and drags the story out. Mr. Gilmore done a bravo job.

What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

I wasn't aware of the 1986 FBI shootout in Miami which prompted police from changing from revolvers to semi-automatics because several FBI agents were shot in the hand or arm and couldn't reload their weapons.
