WALKIN' THE DOG brings the return of Socrates Fortlow, the ex-con hero from Mosley's thriller ALWAYS OUTNUMBERED, ALWAYS OUTGUNNED. Set in the brutal streets of Los Angeles, the story follows Socrates as he continues to rebuild his life nine years after his release from prison. Paul Winfield's powerful voice supports Socrates's struggle against authorities who won't let him forget his past. Winfield offers a dual edge to the character, fleshing out his moments of internal conflict and outward power with compelling intensity. Amid the tension, Winfield does a fine job of bringing forward the periodic humor, keeping a balance listeners will appreciate. R.A.P. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 00]
