DEADMAN'S BLUFF adds a new twist to the mystery genre as it features Skip DeMarco, a blind, poker-playing con man who is out to scam the world's largest poker tournament. The story also involves murder, plot twists, and the requisite investigators? in this case the father-son duo of Tony and Gerry Valentine. Alan Sklar's narration enhances Swain's effort and helps transform a run-of-the-mill story into an entertaining narrative. Sklar brings an authoritative tone to the story, adding verve and personality to the characters. As the story builds, Sklar increases his pace, allowing listeners to feel as if they're part of the action. D.J.S. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 07]
