Stanley Bennett Clay turns this farfetched and easily forgotten crime story into an engrossing, entertaining cliff-hanger. Suffering at the hands of a poorly abridged edition, Clay makes up for the gaping holes left in the plot with his virtuoso performance. Without overdoing it, Clay provides each character with his or her own distinct voice and brings a well-mannered reading to this story of a murderous corporate conspiracy. With his gravelly voice rich with feeling, Clay deserves better material. This outing wastes his stellar talents on a mediocre novel that has been shortened to within an inch of its literary life.
