The only problem apparent in Grippando's latest is in the writing, not the reading. Nick Sullivan contributes a smooth delivery of a contrived plot and pedestrian dialogue. A serial kidnapper is at work, and his ransom demand is "pay what she's worth." If the ransom payment fails to meet the kidnapper's expectations, the victim is killed. Criminal Defense Lawyer Jack Switeck begins a search for his girlfriend, the latest to be abducted. Sullivan is adept at transforming a story with weak dialogue into a strong presentation. He is at his finest when he's called on to voice the several Latin characters. He has the accents down perfectly. A.L.H. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 06]
