Some actors can carry a movie on the strength of their talent. Adam Henderson demonstrates the same skill in his reading of MCNALLY'S ALIBI, the latest Archy McNally murder mystery (written by Vincent Lardo, not Lawrence Sanders, who started the series). Henderson perfectly conveys the smug, pretentious, and egotistical McNally. He captures the essence of McNally, whether he is charming a female state trooper or demonstrating his superiority to Binky, the mailroom boy in his father's law office, where he works as a private investigator. Although Henderson's reading is masterful, he cannot cover up a weak plot. Fortunately for the listener, the best part of this book is the character development. D.J.S.
