S.J. Rozan is a writer gathering a strong following for her Lydia Chin and Bill Stone mysteries. Listening to Bill Dufris's performance, the reasons are evident. Dufris teases out the nuances of the characters and yet doesn't hesitate to draw a clear and distinct portrait of Stone, who allows himself to get involved in "working" in the one place where he's always gotten away from the world, a rural community in upstate New York. A mysterious woman who keeps her identity secret and the always-in-trouble kid are handled compellingly, along with the country characters. Dufris masters the changes in pace in the story, drawing listeners in with each new twist. He's good at women's voices, giving them enough distinct tone and rhythm, then switching to Stone's hard city-edge. Great suspense, great performance. R.F.W.
