Michael Kuperman is weighed down with worries about his marriage, his new-found commitment to Judaism, and his discovery that the prospective merger of his company with another may be in jeopardy. Anthony Heald superbly narrates this complex story. He provides accurate Hebrew pronunciations, a perfect Yiddish accent, and great voices for the many characters. Narrating quietly and gently when called for, he excels in delivering appropriate inflections and tone of voice. All the characters are complicated and flawed, and the story is compelling. Although this might not have universal appeal (much of the story is spent on Jewish religious observances), there is plenty of action and danger to satisfy interested listeners. S.S.R.
