The seventh in the popular Stone Barrington series takes place in glamorous Palm Beach, Florida. A selective use of music and sound effects enhances the mood of this detective story filled with expensive cars, beautiful women, and yachts. Peel away the fluff, and you'll find a story filled with enough twists and intrigue to make it difficult to put down. Tony Roberts's gravelly voice brings a splendid touch of earthiness to cop-turned-lawyer Barrington. Yet at the same time, he is able to change the rhythm and texture of his delivery to successfully shift to the female characters in the story. It's hard to imagine another voice that would have added more to the presentation than Tony Roberts's. F.L.F. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 02]
