Fat Ollie (aka Detective Oliver Wendell Weeks) resurfaces in this witty offering by wordmeister McBain. Take an up-and-coming MTV diva, add a dumb-and-dumber kidnapping team, chop coarsely with a police and federal task force with egos bigger than their intellects, and you have a rousing crime tale replete with inner-city oddballs. Ron McLarty voices them with enough joie de vivre for two readers. McLarty is one of those rare actors who can truly inhabit a voice and a character, which makes for real listening pleasure. Audio quality is clean; direction, writing, and performance top-notch--so why not join Fat Ollie for this buffet? D.J.B. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 04]
