A streetwise, cunning young man fights his way to the top, succeeds as a brilliant investor, and still finds it necessary to cheat four unsuspecting novice investors of their savings. Harvey Metcalf has crossed the wrong men by having them invest in his shady petroleum company. Revenge by these gents is a combination of brilliant planning, stellar acting, and comical psychological warfare. Alex Jennings's command of these characters results in diverse interpretations, ranging from that of an Oxford math professor, an English lord, a French entrepreneur, a Harley Street doctor, and Harvey Metcalf's clever daughter. Jennings's aloof yet driven performance allows the listener space to imagine the vivid English countryside, the posh casinos of Monte Carlo, and the bustling streets of early New York during the Depression.
