Oral surgeon and sometime sleuth Doc Adams is especially motivated to solve a murder in which his own son is the prime suspect. Text and performance combine to create a slick surface with little underneath. The greatest fault is probably in the writing, which sounds like the mechanical stringing together of overworked formulas. Christopher Lane is a fairly competent young reader, but he doesn’t bring enough richness or depth to Boyer’s prose to lift it above the perfunctory.
