Prime number theory and card counting add up to murder in Lake Tahoe. In this audiobook, O'Shaughnessy and Merlington both achieve five-star ratings. The plot is taut, the legal procedures accurate, the language crisp, and the dialogue lively enough to make the listener feel like a voyeur. Merlington's laugh is pure delight, her character voices unique. She provides a sleepy voice with an accent that takes the "r" way inside the mouth for one character, a voice-cracking delivery for a dorky math genius who can card count and win thousands in the casinos, and a learned sound for a Sanskrit scholar who makes irrational numbers and transfinites totally fascinating.
