George Guidall quite simply becomes Cliff Janeway, Denver ex-detective turned bookseller. He inhabits this character and makes listeners completely believe in the story. Credit should go, of course, to John Dunning, who lovingly created this 1992 story, which has a way of staying with any reader. But Guidall just makes it more resonant. There are a few dated references, but they set the time and place rather than detract. Guidall, like Dunning, has an air of teaching in the prose and its presentation. Just glimpse a bit of the bookman's life and thoroughly enjoy this audiobook. R.F.W. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 01]
