Callie, Jimmy's naïve sister, learns that he has escaped from prison. At Callie's apartment he meets Brian, a little boy who's keeping a St. Christopher's medal for his sick father, takes him hostage, and threatens to kill Callie if she calls the police. When news of the kidnapping is unintentionally released, the medal plays a role in saving Brian's' life. Narrator Jennifer Beals depicts Bronx accents with reality. She captures Jimmy's menace, while portraying Callie's fear and NYPD Detective Mort Levy's understanding and warmth. Thanks to excellent sound and vocal qualities, this riveting suspense grips the listener. G.D.W. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 03]
