Narrator Barbara Rosenblat has a legacy to live up to. She's won numerous Audie Awards and AudioFile Earphones. How does this latest performance measure up? It’s great! In fact, her performance clearly outshines the plot of this eleventh novel featuring Assistant District Attorney Alex Cooper. The ADA, who prosecutes sex crimes in New York City, is called in when a librarian is assaulted in her East Side home. The story also involves a volume of ALICE IN WONDERLAND and an antique map. Rosenblat, as usual, does justice to Cooper, and she’s equally adept as Cooper's cohort, NYPD detective Mike Chapman. The authoritative discussion of antique books may not be particularly interesting to some, but Rosenblat's gifted performance keeps the listener fully engaged. A.L.H.
