Narrator Kate Burton's clear, unvarnished delivery captures the persona of cool, straight-shooting Bennie Rosato, the star of Scottoline's popular courtroom drama series. Burton's brisk pacing and nuanced tones are perfect for keeping the listener on course through the detailed investigative and trial procedures featured in Scottoline's novels. This same rapid tempo occasionally causes difficulty in differentiating speakers, but this is a minor distraction. Burton also succeeds at helping the listener maneuver through flashbacks and inner musings as Bennie revisits a case, and a relationship, in an attempt to right a wrong that has haunted her for more than a decade. Any disappointment fans might find with this latest Rosato offering would come from the addition of a romantic element to the straight legal format, and not from Burton's excellent narrative performance.
