The weekly dinner meeting of four friends starts with mundane conversation but soon turns into a list of what attributes would make up the perfect man. Moving from pragmatic to racy, the tenor of the list changes and is picked up by the press. But soon what started as fun turns to fear when one of the women is murdered. A sassy and brash story is given a like reading by Laura Hicks. Her brusque interpretation of the characters leaves one craving sympathy for any of these people, who have such a frightening future awaiting. The one who receives her softest and kindest sounds is, unfortunately, the villain of the piece. The brash, sassy, sexy story itself is what keeps the listener attached to the headset. J.P.
