NAME WITHHELD features J.P. Beaumont, a recovering alcoholic who drives a Porsche. This combination makes him an appealing character, at once vulnerable and successful. Jonathan Marosz is masterful as the eccentric Grace Highsmith and her innocent, hapless niece, Latty Gibbson, who is victimized and raped by Designer Genes executive Don Wolf. Wolf's murder sets off a chain reaction that leads to a satisfying brew of triple homicide, intrigue, and betrayal. Offering to help Beau solve the crimes is smooth, sultry, transgendered Jonny Bickford. Beleaguered by allegations of child sexual abuse and his first wife's terminal illness, Beaumont struggles with a double agenda. Marosz's fast-paced, dramatic performance translates Jance's material into a satisfying "read." M.D.H. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 01]
