With the talents of narrator Angela Dawe, Candace Fleming’s extensive research and strong writing in Murder Among Friends propel listeners through an account of the 1924 murder committed by teenagers Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Michele Cobb discuss this YA true crime audiobook that explores the lives, relationships, and motives of the two teenagers and their hopes to pull off the “perfect crime.” The story is disturbing, and Dawe’s narration is gripping.
