This is an audiobook lover's delight! Linda Fairstein's 25 years as assistant prosecutor for the Manhattan Sex Crimes Unit give her intimate knowledge of police procedure, courtroom drama, and the unsavory characters who populate Manhattan's streets. Barbara Rosenblat's ability to create unique voices for each character is never compromised, even during times of razor-sharp, spitfire dialogue. Add a 1933 coin worth $7.6 million and the deaths of an elderly Harlem Renaissance dancer and an investment banker, and you'll find Fairstein's latest difficult to turn off. Barbara Rosenblat's performance is like having an entire repertory cast. Under her tutelage, the words on the page stand up and become living, breathing people. K.A.T.
