During a botched mugging in late 1970s Harlem, one of the assailants is killed. The assailant's accomplice takes a cruel revenge in this taut thriller. Dion Graham is a study in subtlety in his delivery of this audiobook. One moment he’s easing into the slower cadences of the decade; the next his whisper sucks us into the terror of a Vietnam veteran's flashback. Graham makes linguistic distinctions between black men, those who try to make a difference, and those who do not. However, he never employs language to make moral judgments about any character. Graham keeps the listener connected to and caring for both hero and predator. P.R. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 05]
