Colfer’s new science fiction series provides narrator Maxwell Caulfield a tableau of characters with which to demonstrate his formidable talents. The FBI has created a Witness Anonymous Relocation Program to transport high-profile witnesses into the past to trial. Teenaged Chevron, a magician turned assassin, and her assistant, Riley, end up in Victorian London. There they become caught up in a protection racket involving a relocated witness who has set up a crime network for himself. The vocal technique Caulfield employs to transition seamlessly between characters is evident at every turn. The absurdly comical self-important crime boss, Tibor Charismo, is beautifully juxtaposed with the frightening eagerness of the assassin, Garrick. Chevron’s no-nonsense tone is the perfect partner for Riley’s street-savvy Cockney. M.F. SYNC 2014 © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2013]
