Mystery & Suspense • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2000

In this psychological thriller, ex-cop Zed van Heerden, an irascible alcoholic with a penchant for getting into fights, has been hired to investigate the murder of a South African antiques dealer. The unusual weapon used, an M-16 assault rifle, and a small scrap of paper are the only clues, and van Heerden has only seven days to find the threads and tie them together before time runs out. Saul Reichlin's deep voice has a quiet quality that is easy to listen to. Because of his skill in character voicing, the story, told in flashbacks, is easy to follow. His portrayal of van Heerden is especially well drawn, and other characters also come to life superbly. With its authentic South African accents and impressive range of emotions, Reichlin's narration makes for an excellent performance. S.S.R.
