Mystery and adventure fans will love this latest effort from one of the masters of the genre. It’s the tale of a popular New York governor’s macho expedition into the Wyoming wilderness to show the country he’s man enough to be president. Narrator Richard Ferrone is masterful. He has the perfect, hard-boiled, slightly grizzled voice that is standard issue for this story, but he adds great characters and a wonderful dramatic sense. Ferrone avoids predictable traps by using subtle vocal inflections to keep us off guard, and he also keeps us guessing about who is behind the mayhem. Listen especially to his descriptions of the great Wyoming scenery. He makes it sound breathtaking. R.I.G. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 01]
