This vicious and delicious parody satisfies on many levels. The much-beloved world of bestselling author Lilian Jackson Braun (author of an endless series of The Cat Who. . . . mysteries) is whipsawed through Kaplow's bizarre and hilarious filter until it resembles the seaminess real life often holds. That Braun is murdered horribly and has led a sordid second life is just the beginning. Enjoy the remainder of this R-rated parody with reader Arte Johnson, who deadpans a wicked George Guidall impression throughout. (Guidall has voiced all of the actual Braun audiobooks.) Johnson never overplays the comedy, and adds wonderful fillips of innuendo and archness throughout his performance. Not for the easily offended, but a deeply funny recording. D.J.B.
