Jack de Golia is the consummate narrator for this clever story. James Gaffney (not his real name) is a "child killer for hire" who actually does the opposite--saves the kids and has them adopted. Listeners will thoroughly enjoy de Golia's rendering of the chubby, sloppy, witty, and kind 40-something Gaffney. Since it's generally affluent parents who hire him, he is also wealthy. His assistant, Marissa (a kid he saved), helps him survive the many risks he takes. It's fun and informative to hear him perform his other job as a baseball card dealer. De Golia also excels at portraying the undesirables Gaffney mingles with. Gaffney frequently doesn't know the good guys from the bad--nor will listeners. The literal and figurative cliff-hanger ending is par for the course. S.G.B. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2018]
