Creepy, crazed criminal Ricky Roy Lozada has gotten away with murder for the last time. When he tries to court the jury foreman after his latest acquittal, he finds her no easy mark. Nor has he bargained for the devotion of her friends. Tom Wopat excels at characterization, personifying the oily Lozada with the same skill he brings to a variety of individual police detectives, a skilled surgeon, hormonal teenagers, and the class geek. His competent skills with narrative seem almost unnecessary as the story unfolds though passages of dialogue among easily identifiable speakers. While the predictable ending could contain more punch, the journey to its climax is worth every minute of listening. R.P.L. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 03]
