This is another entry in a series of mysteries set in old Hollywood; each features one or several famous movie actors or actresses. Here it's W.C. Fields, whose old bank accounts around the country are being looted. The story is routine; the joy comes from realistic contact with the great ones, and Kaminsky nicely captures Fields in all his eccentricities. Reader George Guidall does, too, enunciating Fields's famous intonation. The listener delights in that wonderful drawl and use of multisyllabic words. Guidall handles the other characters with equal ease. D.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 99]
