brilliantly told tale of Government led corruption. an embarrassing set of facts that show crack epidemics is L.A. are the result of CIA backed programmes.... but never mind, at least the USA prison systems are full so fat cats are happy and rich.... shame on you CIA
Would you try another book written by Gary Webb or narrated by Christian Rummel?
Narration was fantastic!
I was expecting more of a story. Less of a statement
Was Dark Alliance worth the listening time?
After about an hour the listening became easier. Once I had become more accustomed to the bombardment of facts.

What made the experience of listening to Dark Alliance the most enjoyable?
Learning of the events I have read a lot about growing up this book tied them all together. what i previously thought were separate issues were actually one big one and are simply amazing. If you had any doubt some operate above the law this should settle that position once and for all. If you grew up during the Reagan years and remember the headlines this book will fill in many blanks. Well researched and written it is a powerful example that anything goes when people with power want to get something done. Scary and confirms many things I already believed. If you love history, documentaries, corruption and the manipulation of power its all here. Bravo to the author for a well crafted story if true its simple to hard to believe

What did you love best about Dark Alliance?
The drug story is fascinating and sounds well researched, but it is sometimes hard to keep up with all of the people in audio form. If I were reading it, I would probably flip back and forth to remind myself of people.
Which character – as performed by Christian Rummel – was your favorite?
I did not care for the voices to indicate different speakers although the Sam Nunn accent was pretty good. I am a bit of a nitpicker on pronunciation, and there were a couple of issues--Lawton Chiles pronounced as Chill-ays and the Medellin cartel pronounced almost as medallion.
Otherwise, I liked the narration--appropriate inflection and easy to follow.
