Meet Fay Fanon, also known as Rat Dog Rick, a stick-to-it detective who becomes involved in an investigation of the Tene Bimbo family, those Gypsies who befriend old people, swindle them out of money and homes, and then assist them toward a swift death. Breck reads this mystery in husky, sultry tones suitable for a scrappy detective, using a range of narrative devices, including speaker phones, to dramatize events. The story and Breck's creative, non-stop narrative wrap the listener into the events of the three-year investigation. Listeners may not realize that this captivating mystery is Olsen's recounting of "true crimes." M.B.K. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 00]
