When a nineteenth-century English country boy runs away to set right an injustice done to his dead father, he discovers a seedy dark side of London. His search for John Diamond leads him through adventures both terrifying and exhilarating. Reader Ron Keith paints a plausible picture of the boy's eye-opening experiences in the bustling city, especially his frustration at every turn of London's crooked alleys. Keith breathes life into a variety of eccentric characters, from a greedy dwarf to an uneducated street fighter with an altruistic soft spot. Keith's energetic presentation maintains the listener's interest in this old-fashioned story. N.M.C. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 03]
