When an illegal Mexican immigrant is shot by a Texas senator, his body cremated, and his wife hastily deported—attorney Casey Jordan must discover why. In doing so, she must fight local police, bureaucrats, and the senator and his minions. Bernadette Dunne's performance is masterful as she smoothly slips from character to character. Her portrayal of Jordan is particularly noteworthy—the listener hangs on her every word and action. Dunne also captures the various Mexicans and the novel's minor characters as she gives the book a memorable personality. Her accents are realistic, and the tones she uses to highlight events add to the strength of the story, and its powerful conclusion. D.J.S.
