When Barbara Rosenblat performs a book, it's like having an entire repertory theater at the listener's beck and call. In SUSPICION OF MALICE, Rosenblat demonstrates her ability not only to give each character a unique persona, but also a truly unique sound. The title is a classic Barbara Parker murder mystery in which even the adversaries have a singular goal, to exonerate young dancer Bobby Gonzalez. When read by Rosenblat, however, the story becomes extraordinary. Whether the character is attorney Anthony Quintana, or his ex-fiancée, attorney Gail Connor, it is as though separate actors are behind the mike, each giving a virtuoso performance. Rosenblat's performance demonstrates that even a great read can be dramatically improved by a great reader. D.J.S.
