This production of Sandford's latest in his popular series featuring Minneapolis police detective Lucas Davenport is vivid and entertaining. Davenport is facing a formidable adversary: hit woman Clara Rinker, hired by local attorney Carmel Loan to kill her lover's wife. With his pleasant and malleable voice, Eric Conger is at ease portraying women, regional intonations, and even (chillingly) the all-too-real screams of a torture victim. His enjoyment of his work shows in the banter between the cops and in the battles Davenport wages with Loan. Perfect pacing and on-target emotions enhance the suspense. Unsettling sound effects of the various weapons make the violence more immediate. Irresistible. M.A.M. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 99]
