Klavan's third novel featuring Scott Weiss finds the PI scouring the country for a prostitute who has become the fixation of a hit man. Weiss's gift for intuitively knowing people squares off against the killer's ability to strategize and remain unseen until he's ready to strike. Klavan's narration can best be described as caricatured. He delivers a hard-boiled detective story with a voice that could turn listeners toward or away from future narrations by him. His purposeful toughness in male characterizations echoes film noir vocal mannerisms as do the alluring tones of his female characters. The narrator's overall tone adds to story's atmosphere of pulp fiction, which may or may not be to the listener's taste. L.E. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 06/ JAN 07]
