Tell Me Everything: The Story of a Private Investigation

Macmillan Audio. Mar. 2022. 9:35 hrs. ISBN 9781250839213. $26.99. MEMOIR
Listeners will be transfixed as Gabra Zackman reads Krouse’s detailed memoir of her five years working as an inexperienced private investigator for a civil attorney. She is in her element when she’s assigned a sexual assault case with the accused being a local university’s football team. Krouse searches for witnesses and victims, making the case expand in scope. Meanwhile, she deals with toxic issues within her family, with her feelings as a survivor of sexual abuse, and with notoriety when the case receives national attention. The audiobook opens with piano music under the intro, setting listeners up for the narrative to unwind. Zackman projects a very stiff and professional demeanor, almost clinical in nature, as she becomes Krouse. She infuses a wide range of emotions into the story, remaining objective when listening to victims and maintaining total control of her anger when speaking with suspects. She is relaxed when talking about her boyfriend, yet tightly wound when talking to her mother and her siblings.
VERDICT Krouse’s memoir will be appreciated by true crime fans and those who follow legal mysteries.
