Notable German screenwriter Arango has produced a funny, thoughtful thriller. The protagonist is a fraud who is breathtakingly free of scruples--except when he mysteriously does the right thing. Corey Brill is the perfect narrator for Arango's audiobook although the plot is so intricate and full of surprises that it's sometimes difficult to feel sympathy for his colorful mob of characters. Arango's translator did a comprehensive job--one hardly remembers that the action is taking place in Germany. While Brill's strong voice is clear and expressive, like Arango's characters, he holds enough back to keep the listener guessing what will happen next. His pacing is suitably quick but always clear enough to follow, and he does an excellent job with some wonderful dialogue. F.C. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2015]
