Wisecracking San Antonio private eye Tres Navarre has some questionable pals. One of them shows up on his doorstep right after committing a murder. Moments later, cops arrive, not because of the pal's crime, but because his wife, a decorated policewoman, has been killed. Of course, Tres can't just let the chips fall where they may, and thereby hangs this tale. Tom Stechschulte gets mixed reviews for his performance here. He's got the tone down and the humor. His fully voiced characters are vivid. But he is not always paying attention and, therefore, glosses over key plot points and important moments. He lulls when he ought to excite. It's work concentrating on his voice. Y.R. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 06]
