Carlotta Carlyle is an appealing detective. She's an ex-cop, sometimes cab driver and has distinct physical presence--6'1" and red hair. With her Boston locale, she has a considerable regional following. Carlotta's current challenge involves hospital politics and counterfeit drugs. Kate Nelligan gives Carlotta a no-nonsense voice with deep resonance. She employs a nice range of character voices from the softness of Paolina, Carlotta's eleven-year-old Little Sister to tough Sam Gianelli, sometimes lover and cab company owner, bringing each alive. The story moves quickly and compels the listener to stay right with the action. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: NOV 93]
