Dave Delano spends his five-year prison term (for a crime he didn't commit) learning Russian from his cellmate, reading extensively and planning the theft of millions of drug dollars. Upon his release, he puts his plan into action. Ferrone gives the American characters an authenticity that couldn't be better. However, his British, Scottish and New Zealand voices fall way short of the mark, and he doesn't even attempt those of the Russian characters. Despite these weaknesses, the clarity of the sound and the crisp tempo engage the listener up to the end, which is replete with surprises. S.S.R. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 00]
