This was,by far, the most captivating book I've ever read. The narration was excellent and the storyline was absolutely incredible. This man was absolutely nuts! Highly recommended. I can't wait for the movie to come out.

Being a big fan of true crime books, (check out "Havana Nocturne", "Unholy Messenger" "Under and Alone" and "Takedown" for a few of my personal favorites) I had high hopes for "Without a Badge". It may, indeed, be an excellent read. Unfortunately, the narrator chosen for this audiobook presentation was laughably awful. The actual narration of descriptive text was passable, but every time he attempts an accent of any kind, the performance jumps into the realm of the silly. NONE of the attempted accents, (several New York, New Jersey, and various hispanic accents make the list) are anywhere near close to accurate, and in most cases, are so off base they sound like some sort of made up silly voice you'd use to tell a children's story. Or, worse yet, sound like regular speech while randomly scrunching up your mouth to obscure the pronunciation. Sad really, as the subject matter is interesting. I may pick it up and actually read it, provided I can keep a straight face thinking back to the narration of the parts I have already listened to.
