Perhaps it’s the ear-pleasing Scots burr that makes this audio so appealing. Perhaps it’s the way Joe Dunlop differentiates characters, male and female, young and old, friend and foe. Perhaps it’s Dunlop’s portrayal of Oz Blackstone, PI turned movie star and a continuing Jardine character, who tells the story. Here Oz’s pregnant wife’s company is threatened with takeover, his father is being blackmailed, and someone hurls paint at Oz at a premiere. And that’s just the beginning. Oz’s intelligence and investigative skills are mixed with ruthlessness and moral ambiguity. Both author and reader keep you guessing to the end.
