First, the narrator is GREAT; he has a lovely voice and neutral delivery, which I appreciate. The book itself, however, does not succeed. It seems like a compilation of newspaper accounts of individual arrests. There's no detail regarding the trials of the war criminals, other than their complaints over the manner of their arrest, so the book feels repetitious, recounting one arrest after another. It does illustrate the difficulties of arresting war criminals when the governments of the states in which they reside have no interest in seeing them arrested or prosecuted, but this is not enough to sustain my interest. I deleted the book after hearing 65%.
What did you love best about The Butcher's Trail?
This is a great narrative of a tragic period in Balkan history. Solid research and reporting is woven into a story that gives a glimpse into the twisted minds that were responsible for genocide.
Have you listened to any of Paul Hodgson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Paul Hodgson's narration matched the story perfectly.
Any additional comments?
I highly recommend this one.
