With VERTICAL COFFIN, Stephen J. Cannell has added another winner to his list of award-winning novels and television shows. This title is Cannell's latest thriller featuring LAPD detective Shane Scully, whose acumen is put to the test when he investigates why LA sheriffs and ATF agents appear to be shooting each other. Scott Brick's reading is the latest in a string of superb performances. Brick's ability to inject irony and wit into the novel adds to his performance, particularly because his sense of timing is impeccable. The only drawback is that there's quite a bit missing from this abridgment. A shame. D.J.S. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 04]
