In this police procedural, series characters Dismas Hardy and Abe Glitzky become involved in a case of double murder and arson. Overall, the story suffers from bloat, smart characters who act stupidly at the author's convenience, and an unconvincing ending. But clever characterizations and a solid mystery prevail, and the skilled and agile reading of David Colacci keeps it involving. While Colacci does not excel at distinctive characterizations, we always know who's who in each scene, and he makes up for any lack with an engaging voice and good pacing.
