New Orleans is the home of the Nouvelles, a rich group of characters who are closer than family. Ostensively, their livelihood is magic. But illusion is a cover for their real vocation, high-tech jewel theft. While some of the amorous passages may have read well in print, they sound silly when spoken. Otherwise, the program is flawless. Reader Burr displays a variety of intonations and accents from kids to little ladies and old men, from Cajuns to New Yorkers and Mexicans. The reading is light and clear, with pacing that varies from sultry to suspenseful. D.W.K. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 93]
