This fourth outing in the P.C. Hawke series follows P.C. and Mackenzie as the two teenaged amateur investigators look into the murder of a preeminent zoologist at the Bronx Wildlife Conservation Park. Jeff Woodman reads with a youthful voice that works well for P.C.'s first-person narration. Woodman helps the listener keep track of the many other characters--male and female--by giving them individual voices. He reads with just the right amount of urgency and adolescent bravado to keep the plot moving. Listeners will learn about zoos, gorillas, and crime investigation in another fine installment in this excellent series. A.F.
