Keith's performance in this British police procedural is a marvel. Whatever a character's gender, age or class, Keith infuses his reading with an authenticity that doesn't sound the least forced. In his narration, these people all seem to have come from some place, to have lived lives. No, the flaws here are not Keith's. The story follows Detective Charlie Resnick, a familiar Harvey character, as he investigates the murder of his lover's friend. As always, Harvey proves himself a sophisticated and perceptive writer. Yet he weighs down this book with subplots and digressions that are simply uninvolving. Despite Keith's expert reading, it's hard to keep your attention from wandering, an all but fatal shortcoming when it comes to an audiobook. M.O. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 00]
