The comedic adventures of sports agent Myron Bolitar take a dark turn in the seventh book in his series when Bolitar and friends face a case of a dying child and a serial kidnapper. Myron's old college sweetheart has just told Myron that he is the father of her 13-year-old son, now dying of Fanconi anemia. Only a bone marrow transplant can save the boy, and the only donor has mysteriously disappeared. Jonathan Marosz manages an array of characters-- both good and evil--with richness of vocal tones and color, while giving the third-person narrator a journalistic, almost distant voice. The whole thing works magnificently as Myron takes on the issues of fathers, sons, masculinity, and violence. Marosz's reading shows the humor, the depth, and the vivid storytelling skills of the author. S.E.S. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 01]
