Mystery & Suspense • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1997

Stone Barrington, Manhattan ex-cop turned attorney/investigator, stumbles onto a murder investigation while on vacation in St. Marks and defends the beautiful woman accused of the crime. Tony Roberts's careful and diligent interpretation of Barrington culminates in a superb and stimulating performance. Barrington's persona is tough, street-wise and just vulnerable enough to be sexy. As the overly ambitious prosecuting Minister of Justice, Roberts applies a proper British accent combined with a condescending attitude. The glamorous and mysterious defendant is portrayed as controlled and aloof in the courtroom, yet smoldering and subtly manipulative in Barrington's arms. Roberts's acting expertise is equally applied to all Woods's characters, resulting in a riveting listening treat. B.J.P. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB 98]
