Westlake's hard-boiled murder mystery is effectively read by L. J. Ganser. When several members of Ray Kelly's family are killed, his investigation reveals that his father worked for the Mob. Ganser's flat Philip Marlowe-style narration enhances the story's many twists as Kelly seeks revenge. Ganser uses a variety of accents, as well as changes in pacing and volume, to provide unique voices for the myriad of underworld characters. Listeners will be carried along by the gripping story and Ganser's impressive reading. S.C.A. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 05]
