Would you consider the audio edition of Betrayal: The Crisis in the Catholic Church to be better than the print version?
As I have never read the print version, I am unable to sufficiently answer.
What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?
It was pure reportage. Though a mixture of reporting on the subject and a background on the process behind the reporting, a la All The President's Men, may have offered a different perspective on the story, the fundamental documentation of the sins of the Catholic Church regarding sexual abuse by priests, specifically Cardinal Law of Boston, was jaw dropping and disheartening.
Any additional comments?
This was a real page turner but, without introducing the reporters into the story as many journalistic tomes do, the narrative was too provincial. This happened nationwide, for that matter, throughout most of the Cold War era termed "First World," but it only briefly touched on stories outside the archdiocese of Boston.

This book speaks of long needed triumph and of abuse of perceived power. I recommend this book to anyone who seeks awareness and reality!
