Attorney Paul Madriani's defends a research scientist accused of murdering his assistant, who had charged him with sexual harassment. Since the doctor's research involved genetic profiling, it's a doubly sensational case. The suspense of the investigation makes for an engaging story, and John Slattery has an easy, likable voice and style that mesh well with the first-person narrative. Slattery uses regional accents to voice the characters, who are easily differentiated. His emotional pitch is on target throughout a story in which murder, guilt, and innocence are key factors. This legal thriller has a lot of surprises, and the production keeps one listening. M.A.M. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 02]
