DETROIT - An American Autopsy by Charlie LeDuff

DETROIT - An American Autopsy by Charlie LeDuff chronicles the state of Motown after the roller-coaster ride of carmakers like GM and Ford. Written with dark wit and confessional bravery, the book outlines corruption with case studies of politics and law enforcement gone wrong. Is Detroit a microcosm of America? You decide, after hearing astonishing instances in which failures of management are augmented by pervasive apathy. As read by Eric Martin, this is a cautionary true tale told by a former Pulitzer Prize winning journalist for the NY Times, now working for Fox News in Detroit (and what a delicious irony that is for a writer who actually has returned home there, after South Korea is now home to the largest auto plant in the world.)
