Joe Trona knows when to go to a quiet place in his mind, high, where the eagle is. As a baby, his face was scarred with acid. Abandoned, then adopted, he is trained as a prison guard and as driver/guard for his adoptive father, whose complex political maneuverings generate tragedy. One foggy night an unseen voice rasps: "Will Trona, let's talk!" and before Joe can move, the man he loves is gunned down. The understanding James Daniels affords Parker's tightly crafted work is outstanding. From politicos to jailbirds, genders and nationalities are excellent. He displays every nuance with perfect pacing, voicing, and intonation, and the story is further enhanced by some use of audio effects. Silent Joe has a true voice in James Daniels. S.B.S.
