This interesting, albeit undistinguished, production relates the life and times of dapper bunco artist Charles (Carlo) Ponzi, who in the nineteenth century invented the investment swindle that now bears his name. Grover Gardner does his wonted exemplary job with this fare. His tone is at once light--as befits the author’s urbane and oft humorous prose--and detached--apropos of a biography of one who brought devastation down upon his many victims. Gardner’s crisp timbre and impeccable diction are, as usual, a pleasure. Y.R. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 05]
