Robert Forster's low, gravelly voice is the perfect accompaniment for Estleman's five hard-boiled detective stories. PI Amos Walker pursues corruption and crime in Detroit. Forster is particularly good in his portrayal of the wise-cracking, streetwise detective. He also moves easily from one character to another and quickly engages listeners in his smooth performance. Forster's flat, gritty style perfectly suits the plots of these quick-paced, ruthless, and utterly entrancing stories. Forster's voice reflects the building suspense in some stories and the simple logic used to solve crimes in others. This well-performed presentation will please Estleman fans as well as those who simply enjoy murder mysteries.
Skyboat Media and Ten12 Entertainment are proud to bring you five short stories featuring Detroit’s favorite private investigator. In Five Stories From General Murders, Academy-Award nominee Robert Forster breathes life into Amos Walker, a hardboiled detective reminiscent of the Hammett-Chandler tradition.
Included in this collection are: “Greektown,” “Robbers’ Roost,” “Fast Burn,” Dead Soldier, and “Eight-Mile and Dequindre.”
