This collection of 14 short stories, 8 from the Lieutenant Mendoza series and 6 other tales, is ably read by Alan Sklar. Sklar has a straightforward, clear, concise delivery. His accent for Mendoza of the L.A. Police Department is good, and he easily moves between genders and distinguishes the numerous characters. Sklar's matter-of-fact style and evenly modulated voice heighten the trademark realism of Del Shannon. The multifarious cases undertaken by Mendoza add to the uniqueness and vividness of these unabridged selections. S.C.A. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 02]
