M.J. Wilde's brisk, clear enunciation creates a likable, realistic picture of April Woo, New York City police detective on the trail of a serial killer. Woo's Chinese accent is read as firm but light and is well portrayed. Woo's partner, Mike, comes from the Bronx, and Wilde handles his New York vernacular with rapid precision as he and Woo discuss each case enroute to the crime scene. Guttural sounds of fighting and vomiting during interrogation are graphic, yet well done. This fast-paced mystery, with its extraordinary gender distinctions, draws listeners into the story and holds them to the gripping conclusion. Wilde is a talented narrator.
