Hammer has the perfect voice for Burke's novel. He provides the slow drawl of a storyteller from the Deep South who hints of cigarettes and Southern Comfort. Yet he moves effortlessly between characterizations, equally convincing as the gruff detective Robichaux and the seductive Karyn LaRose. He delivers an easy New Orleans drawl and a spicy bayou twang as the cast of victims and suspects becomes intertwined. Some background sounds make this presentation less than technically perfect, but nothing detracts from the engaging plot and the captivating delivery. B.L.W.
