Editor reviews

In 2009, 14-year veteran of the Houston Police force Tommy Harris ended up in an altercation which caused a man's sudden death. Paul Alexander, best-selling author of the Kindle Single Murdered, examines Harris' grand jury indictment for criminally-negligent homicide and the dramatic trial that ensued. Paul Christy's hard-nosed performance never overdramatizes or sensationalizes, and he keeps his narration sharp as controversy rages during the trial, with accusations of perjury blurring the facts of the case. Christy keeps up the pace throughout the audiobook, and listeners will find themselves holding their breath until the verdict is revealed in the end.

Summary

Paul Alexander, the best-selling author of the Kindle Single Murdered, introduces us to Tommy Harris, the 14-year veteran of the Houston Police force, his fight with a man outside a bar, a death, and the ensuing homicide trial. The district attorney had boasted, "Anyone can convict a guilty person, but it takes someone really good to convict an innocent one." Did Harris apply a naked choke-hold, or did the district attorney and his forensics team set up Harris?

Riviting tale

As true stories go this was very interesting, I was constantly distracted by the narration, it was very matter of fact and more monotonous.... He also sounded a lot like Colonel Potter from M*A*S*H!!!!

Could not put this one down

This is a well written and well performed account of a person wrongly accused and railroaded into court by a corrupt DA. I was instantly hooked by the story. Sometimes, the good guy really does win.

Should have stuck to a straight up documentary

This story adds scenes and dialogue written to support a true crime story of a Houston cop charged with murder. The investigation and judicial process parts are accurately described and informative, but the delivery method of this story crashes and burns. The creative writing parts aren’t that interesting, the dialogue is wooden, and the narrator is robotic. I would have enjoyed this better with the author reporter telling us about the case and perhaps interviewing the actual characters.

Compellingly Told masterpiece.

Wow. This unsentimental but well told journey that the amazing author and excellent narrator take the reader through was enough to bring me to tears at the end.

Truly a human story that captures society at its best and worst. Vindication, redemption, hope and truth prevailing in the end. I didn’t want this one to ever end. Well done !
