Narrator Susan Ericksen deftly portrays private investigator V.I. Warshawski, who takes on a case that leads from Chicago to the Midwest and racial tensions of the past. A young film student and a faded black movie star have gone missing while while making a documentary of her Hollywood years. Ericksen's conversational style, skillful emotional range, and diverse accents enhance the production. When the mystery takes Warshawski to Kansas, Ericksen creates believable-sounding former anti-nuclear activists. And when a woman who tries to help Warshawski is obstructed by her venomous parents, Ericksen captures all the tension in their relationship. Ericksen is particularly adept at portraying spirited black folks of all ages. Subtle humor and glimpses of Warshawski's troubled love life add levity to a tragic story.
