Mystery & Suspense


by | Read by L.J. Ganser

Mystery & Suspense • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2000

L.J. Ganser lacks versatility and experience, but he brings to the forefront a unique style. Connelly also departs from the past in this work. In earlier thrillers, detective Harry Bosch was always the good guy. Not so with the main characters here, Cassidy Black and Jack Karch. “Cassy,” a burglar on parole for manslaughter, tries to make a financial killing by breaking into a Las Vegas hotel. The listener really wants to like Karch, a rogue P.I. hired to track down Cassidy. But Karch’s continued villainy, ably performed by Ganser, makes liking him impossible. Ganser’s narration is crisp and clear; at the beginning he sometimes fractures sentences, but he’s smooth and accomplished by the end. This reviewer was well prepared to hate this audiobook as it departs from a previous publisher and favorite reader, Dick Hill. But there are a lot of surprises in this latest Connelly audio, and Ganser’s performance is one of the more pleasant ones. A.L.H. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 00]
