Narrator Feodor Chin beautifully performs Tom Lin’s revenge story, The Thousand Crimes of Ming Tsu, set in the post-Civil War American West. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Alan Minskoff discuss Chin’s masterful narration of this violent and vivid tale, capturing the lyrical flow of the text, and voicing authentic-sounding accents, while also building the mystery and tension. Ming Tsu was forcibly recruited by the Union Pacific Railroad as a manual worker, and after he escapes, he’s determined to track down every man who tore him away from his wife.
