Richard Poe commendably presents Queens, New York, with its cross section of cultures and residents, including onetime top lawyer--now foreclosure profiteer--Ted Molloy. Listeners will enjoy the action as Molloy tackles real estate moguls and Russian mafia between visits to Mets home games and Gallagher's Pub. Molloy is determined to save Barbara Miller, who has dementia, from professional swindlers. Poe portrays African-American Lester Young-McKinley, Molloy's assistant, in a convincing yet gentle manner that is the counterpoint to Molloy's take-no-prisoners style. Splendidly rendered descriptions of the locale, people, and food add texture, while snippets of Molloy's life add dimension and levity. Poe's superb delivery, including his ability to deliver multiple accents, enhances the story's fascinating personalities. S.G.B.
