Elmore Leonard doesn’t need to attract more readers; still fans of crime fiction with limited time will be grateful for this recording of his 1980 book. Street punk Clement Mansell does a favor for Detroit’s criminals and cops when he accidentally kills a very unpopular judge. If anyone but Raymond Cruz were the investigator, Mansell would probably never have to pay for his deed. Frank Muller’s dry, matter-of-fact narration perfectly recreates Leonard’s street talk. Slight vocal inflections help the listener distinguish among the characters: prostitutes, waitresses, witnesses and lawyers. J.L. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 94]
