Dennis Boutsikaris assumes the persona of Jewish Defense Attorney David Wolfe with masterful ease. He uses authoritative, commanding tones as he mounts a defense for Palestinian Hana Arif, his former lover. Arif is charged with the conspiracy and murder of Israel's prime minister, Amos Ben-Aron, in the first suicide bombing attack in the U.S. The clash of ideologies in Palestine and Israel is a secondary plot line that overshadows Wolf and Arif's complicated, passionate love story. Boutsikaris captures Wolfe's interrupted marital plans and Arif's husband's hatred of all things Jewish with a building tension as layer after layer of intrigue and duplicity are unveiled. Boutsikaris depicts Jewish and Arab accents with finesse and suggests other languages with subtlety. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 07]
