Scott Turow’s latest legal thriller features a maverick partner absconding, perhaps, with $5.6 million belonging to the firm’s most important client. Stacey Keach is the perfect voice to capture the rough-textured character of ex-cop turned lawyer Mack Malloy who goes looking for the money and his wayward partner. Keach draws each character with real insight and conveys these less-than-polished characters with great flair. Even “la femme,” Mack’s partner, Brushy, is convincing, showing how a professional voice can present cross-gender characters with great success. Pacing and inflection add to Keach’s mastery. Overall entertainment value is high. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPT 93]
