Richard Ferrone's gritty voice is a big plus in this story of a man who hides in the Caribbean after committing the perfect embezzlement for the love of a woman. That's because Ferrone is called upon to portray not only the American ex-patriot, but also a host of local characters, including a mysterious islander. The story of Jordan Wise doesn't end with the theft. He's forced to commit multiple crimes, including murder, to remain free. Ferrone is near perfect as Wise; further, his virtuosity really shows as he switches from one character to another without missing a beat. Ferrone is one of the best at handling irony, and there's plenty in this story. A.L.H. 2007 Audies Award Finalist © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 06/ JAN 07]
