In an underworld setting of everyday crime and casual killing, Elmore Leonard presents his cast of offbeat characters. As usual, listeners have a hard time deciding who, if anybody, to like. Reader Alexander Adams is well-suited to this material; he brings this varied cast of scalawags to life with the skill of a good storyteller. Adams handles dialects well and provides a real plus by not overplaying female voices, presenting them only with lighter inflection and pace. Perhaps his strongest contribution is his ability to express feelings through slight shifts in tone and style. An excellent effort. T.J.M. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 94]
