Jean Smart was indeed the "smart" choice to narrate the latest installment in the V.I. Warshawski series. She capably presents the P.I. as an intelligent, no-nonsense character who is not afraid to stick her nose into danger to find the answer. In DEADLOCK, Warshawski investigates the death of her cousin, a former pro-hockey player of the Chicago Blackhawks, and finds herself uncovering scandal in Chicago's shipping industry. Lacing her narration with both sarcasm and tension, Smart colorfully performs V.I. and a wide array of characters--from the dock workers to the company executives. V.I. is relentless in her quest for the truth--and Smart skillfuly portrays her in its pursuit. K.M.D. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 00]
