    By Andrew Vachss

    Read by Phil Gigante

    Child lawyer Andrew Vachss delivers a raw, eye-opening story of two brothers.

    "...a highly compelling work of fiction by a master story teller at the top of his game...Grade: A-...[Narrator] Gigante is capable of some amazing vocal gymnastics...but it's his ability to capture the edges of the characters that makes his performance in here special...Gigante reads That's How I Roll like the author intended it to be read, and that, to me, is the most important thing a narrator can do." - The Guilded Earlobe

  • A Bomb Built in Hell

    By Andrew Vachss

    Read by Phil Gigante

    Vachss's explosive story of Wesley, a ruthless assassin who stops at nothing to take out his targets

    "Phil Gigante has become the go-to narrator for Vachss work, and that's a valuable asset for any author. Gigante reads A Bomb Built in Hell with an appropriate low-key style that fits this dark tale. There are a lot of colorful characters along the way, and Gigante is one of the best at voicing the various lowlifes, scumbags and human detritus that can populate the dark criminal worlds that Vachss creates. Yet, what Gigante does so well here is the transformational journey that he takes Wesley's character on." - The Guilded Earlobe
