Listeners may get a sinking feeling at the beginning of this book as Charlie O'Dowd reads at such a rapid pace that his words are almost incomprehensible. He races through without pause, intonation, or inflection and with little regard to description or dialogue. The words are strewn together in a seamless string of noise. But by the second chapter, O'Dowd has run out of breath and begins to read at a more reasonable pace. The third and succeeding chapters are nicely done, and listeners are rewarded for their patience with a fairly good presentation of a murder mystery. O'Dowd delivers stylish characterizations and easily accomplishes accents of many nationalities. D.L.M. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 01]
