Justice fighters take many shapes but none as overweight, rumpled, or disorganized as lawyer Herman J. Stockmire. Whether battling the courts on behalf of the monarch butterfly or clashing with government dark-ops, Herman is a hero with a heart problem. Help comes from Private Investigator Jack Wirta, a good guy straight out of film noir--hard-boiled and a little shady. Nick Sullivan narrates with enthusiasm. His character voices change to reflect mood, menace, and mayhem. His men are vital. His women don't simper. Stockmire's daughter, Susan, sounds every bit as capable as her male counterparts. RUNAWAY HEART leaves no doubt why Steven J. Cannell is a bestselling author and one of television's most successful producers. S.J.H. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 03/JAN 04]
