Martial arts student Connor Burke is asked by his brother to step into a murder investigation when a unique clue is left by the victim--a brush stroke of Japanese calligraphy. Barrett Whitener brings Burke's first-person point of view to life with a tone of humility and determination, adding brush strokes of his own, such as a wavering note of fear as danger comes nearer. When delivering action outside Burke's narrative, he gives it a “noirish” detachment. While his Asian accents are too heavy, the overall result is strong. This adept blend of mystery and martial arts should fascinate listeners as it draws them into Burke's world. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 05/ JAN 06]
