This thoroughly researched novel set in wartime Detroit presents an epic assortment of characters involved one way or another in "Kilroy murders." The deranged perpetrator leaves the GI slogan "Kilroy was here" at each crime scene. Narrator Garrick Hagon adopts a tough-guy cynicism that sometimes gets in the way of the mood of individual scenes. His characterizations and attempts at ethnic accents are sometimes offensively cartoony. Otherwise, he gives a workmanlike, if unremarkable, reading. Sound quality of these tapes is uneven with arbitrary shifts in volume and balance. Y.R. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 01]
