Investigator Ann Montgomery and her former partner investigate three accidents at a New York City construction site. Together they uncover corruption that reaches into the highest levels of City Hall. Susan Eriksen gives an enthusiastic, vital reading. Occasionally, when doing character voices, she sounds as if she's pushing a little too hard, but mostly her reading is intelligent and easy on the ear. Rozan's insights into back-room politics, racial divisiveness, scandal-ridden administrators, and influence peddling make for a fascinating story. She draws listeners in by creating an assortment of indelible characters who resonate with credibility. Eriksen's animated narration adds color and energy to this well-crafted condemnation of New York City graft. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 07]
