George Guidall can make even the most boring of books vibrate with excitement. But here is a riveting thriller, with a focus on alternate history. Robbins imagines the assassination of FDR in 1945. The killer is a beautiful Persian woman named, perhaps, Judith. The man who is trying to stop her is a history professor from Edinburgh, Mikhal Lammeck. The dance of hunter and hunted carries the listener through all the strata of American culture. Guidall is especially effective delivering Judith's many accents, creating a cold-blooded but tantalizing character. Guidall also makes the book more intriguing by depicting racial discrimination in a way that print readers might not appreciate as much without hearing it.
