From AudioFile:

The dean of cop fiction, Joseph Wambaugh, hasn't lost a step. Moreover, an expert interpretation by actor Adam Grupper makes HOLLYWOOD STATION a standout in audio fiction. The chameleon-like Grupper creates full-on characterizations of Wambaugh's cast of cops, felons, addicts, street people, and Slavic lowlifes. Grupper brings listeners a vivid, memorable, highly entertaining audio experience. Granted, Wambaugh's people fairly leap off the page, but this interlocking series of characters and crimes, freaks and egomaniacs, heroes and villains fully deserves the one-man audio theater of our reader.
