This smart, complex legal thriller features attorney Joseph Antonelli, a criminal attorney who, in agreeing to defend a man everyone else believes to be guilty, begins to unravel the threads of obsession, retribution, and vengeance. The plot involves not only the murder victim, but also a former colleague of Joseph's who's been a mental patient for years. From the outset, both story and narration are gripping. Dennis Predovic fully inhabits the characters and keeps the tension at just the right point throughout. His delivery is always on target, with emotional states ranging from volatile to despairing as the story dictates. Vocal characterizations are subtle but unfailingly effective. The listener shares Antonelli's determination to discover the truth behind all the lies and manipulations and will be loathe to stop until the story is complete. Neither the story nor the narrator disappoint in this compelling production. M.A.M. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/ JAN 02]
