Edgar Award-winning author Stuart Kaminsky's latest mystery is one of the more enjoyable of recent submissions in this genre. Kaminsky has written a contemporary detective story with gumshoe-era undercurrents, blending a modern theme with classic detective novel characters. Through Lew Fonseca, an out-of-work widowed process server in Sarasota, Florida, Kaminsky spins a multilayered yarn that includes a runaway trophy bride, a molested teen and a frantic mother. Along the way, Kaminsky manages to include a story of personal redemption. The abridged version book is excellently read by actor Joe Barrett, who moves effortlessly between voices and characters. Easy to follow, this is a highly enjoyable audiobook. J.B.B. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 00]
