Daniels's reading is a testament that a good book can be elevated to greatness by a sterling performance. A young Chicago lawyer returns to his Kansas birthplace to administer a will drawn up by his father, a local lawyer now deceased. The will was written for the town's richest and most prominent citizen, who left most of his wealth to the bird man--a homeless man who has wandered city streets for 25 years. As the plot unfolds, the lawyer uncovers a conspiracy and unearths secrets buried for decades. Daniels's capable performance is first-rate. His terse voice is pleasing to the ear, making his characters varied and believable. His fluid reading keeps the listener alert even during those few moments when the plot falters.
