If you can’t imagine a situation with Richard Nixon, John Kennedy, and James Michener playing poker together in the South Pacific during WWII, Homer Hickham has written one for you. Glued together with alcohol, sex, and violence, the implausible story of the search for an AWOL Navy officer who knows too much will keep listeners smiling. Stephen Hoye’s narration adds to the fun, especially with the voices he creates for an international group of characters. His accents include Pidgin, British, Australian, Boston, New Jersey, black, and Japanese. The tempo drags a bit toward the end, but that doesn’t mean that audio fiction lovers won’t get their “full Monte.” J.A.H. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 05]
