I have enjoyed Michael Connelly's fiction and had high hopes that I would enjoy this book as well. The performance is monotone and unemotional, which makes the stories less interesting. Yes, these are stories that he wrote as a reporter in the 80's and 90's. There is some interesting information that the public does not consider. But I think this could have been written and read better. It's a missed opportunity. I did not finish listening due to the performance.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
What was most disappointing about Michael Connelly’s story?
boring - not a story! just a reading of reports and repetitive
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of the narrators?
no - the narrator(s) were fine
the material is not a subject for a book
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Crime Beat?
I just finished HOMICIDE SPECIAL by Miles Corwin - this is a fact bast reporting style no-fiction crime story and it is VERY GOOD
Any additional comments?
I like Mr Connellys work and would like to hear theses stories as stories not just regurgitating his reporting
