This witty, suspenseful narrative creates tension, in part, by contrasting its eccentric characters with the genteel setting of Savannah, Georgia. Jeff Woodman excels at vocal color, quirky phrasing, and other dramatic techniques. In particular, he shows he is a master of accents and cross-gender depiction by bringing alive the character of Chablis, the man who thinks he’s a woman, as “she” prances and fumes through life. Did Jim Williams, the wealthy antiques dealer, kill Danny Hansford, the crazy mixed-up kid, in cold blood? This true-crime story is bizarre, entertaining, and very novel-like, and Woodman should be added to every audiobook addict's list of favorite narrators.
