Yes, this is Rupert Holmes--composer/performer of "Escape" ("The Pina Colada Song"). He's also won Edgar, Tony, and Grammy Awards and is a coy wordsmith who keeps us waiting for the next bon mot in this stylish, funny murder mystery. The comedy backgrounds of our readers--"Saturday Night Live" alum Gasteyer and McKean (from the movies SPINAL TAP and A MIGHTY WIND)--come to the fore as our heroine, O'Connor, an investigative journalist, digs deep into the story of a Dean Martin/ Jerry Lewis type duo. The stars wine, dine, connive--but did they murder? O'Connor follows 40s gumshoe tradition in this 70s romp, replete with sex, romance, and noir-style voice-overs. This is way better than a blackjack in a dark alley or a double cross in Madagascar. D.J.B. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 03]
