Although a worthy topic for this well-researched historical fiction, Second Street Station seemed awkward to me. I was off-put by the "Bowler Hat" and "Mustache" names and occasionally cringed at phrases such as one describing a man as eager as a dog in heat. Could I have misheard that? Hope so! Cassandra Campbell did a fine job with challenging material; like the book, however, her narration couldn't reduce the tension between melodrama and mystery.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
Better writing, better narration.
What could Lawrence H. Levy have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Better writing, for example, if the author knew the difference between the word "expletive" and "explanation" which was used incorrectly about 30 minutes into it. Also there were more cliche's than I can stand, even for light entertainment. Why do I think this may have been self-published?
How did the narrator detract from the book?
It was like listening to a children's or YA book, the narration was very wide-eyed and arch.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
