Investigative reporter Kurt Eichenwald is also the acclaimed author of the New York Times best-seller Conspiracy of Fools and The Informant, which was made into a Golden Globe-nominated film. In 500 Days, Eichenwald turns his keen journalistic eye on the months that followed 9/11. From George W. Bush to Tony Blair, and from the CIA to the terrorists they hunted, no stone is left unturned.

"Eichenwald gives a (sometimes painfully) detailed history of the period following the 9/11 attacks, frequently moving among people and places in the manner of contemporary thrillers. Holter Graham's voice is slightly and pleasantly hoarse, though rather nasal. His emotional expression is effective in representing people's thoughts and feelings, and his intonation is usually appropriate to the text, for example, expressing Eichenwald's scorn for frequent examples of stupidity and cruelty. Graham is energetic and moves the book along at a good pace. While he provides serviceable facsimiles of the speech of Bush and Cheney, his Middle Eastern and Eastern European accents wander and merge, and his British accent is weak. And he mispronounces "extremists," a frequent irritation. Still, this is a serviceable reading of wide-ranging, sometimes complex, material. W.M. (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
