Unlike the usual courtroom thriller, this exciting novel begins with a grand jury trial in which an elderly Chinese couple is charged with cocaine possession and illegal money. The trial is over within the first 10 minutes, but the real adventure is just beginning for jurors Susan Linwood and David Clark. Over the next six hours the listener is transported from midtown Manhattan to Chinatown and off to Hong Kong. Reader Rubinstein handles the voices of the characters with true skill, and his Chinese dialect is right on target. Just when the listener thinks the mystery is solved, the story takes another twist, and the climactic ending is a thrill ride for the ears and mind. Production quality is superb.
