RETRO An Amos Walker Novel

by | Read by Mel Foster

Mystery & Suspense • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

Mel Foster reads Estleman's quintessential noir story in a Philip Marlowe-esque style, adding drama and mystery to the streets of Detroit and Toronto. The world-weary first-person narration marries well with Foster's deadpan delivery. A former madam, Beryl Garnet, asks Walker to deliver her "cremains" to Lance West, her adopted son. Walker's investigation is described through wisecracking repartee and well-honed prose in the finest tradition of the genre. Listeners will enjoy the evocative mood of the mystery, as well as Foster's superb gritty delivery. Imagine plumes of smoke and whiskey bottles in desks and glove compartments. S.C.A.
