I suspect this narrator has trouble pronouncing his own name (in dic did) indeed. And a better name for this book would be. How I got my guilty client off. A Lawyer's Story.
I'm one hour into this book and wondering if it will be worth finishing. The story is interesting and the writing is good enough but I'm growing bored with the narrator's apparent need to inject himself into it. What with the drama inserted by the narrator, the multiple mispronunciations and the repetitive throat clearings inserted into conversations, I'm rapidly losing interest.

What did you like best about Decades of Doubt? What did you like least?
The story was fascinating, sad and intriguing however the narration was most unpleasant which unfortunately really let it down. The voice had what sounded like a Canadian accent which really didn't suit the New England region and the constant coughing, ahemming (clearing of the throat) and stuttering made listening barely tolerable, and while I imagine there may have been some of that in real life, this does not translate well to the listener and I find it unlikely that all the characters did this as was represented in the narration. Even more bothersome was the high level of mispronunciation of some very basic words.
Would you be willing to try another one of R. Paul Matty’s performances?
A categorical No.
Was Decades of Doubt worth the listening time?
The story itself made me persevere through the narration.
