Mystery & Suspense • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1991

Sometimes a reader can take a good piece of writing, like QUARRY, and suck the life out of it with a bland portrayal of the lead character. This is one of those cases. QUARRY is moody story that captures both the ambiance of rural California and the slick impersonality of San Francisco in a gritty detective yarn with a real undertone of malevolence. Sadly, Nick Sullivan plays the hero, The Nameless Detective, so blandly it's hard to believe Nameless has a tough bone in his body, though he's thrown into physical danger on a regular basis. Interestingly, Sullivan breathes life into the minor characters, having an easier time with accents, mannerisms, and tics in these supporting roles. If this production were a full-cast production with committed actors making strong choices, it would be memorable listen. D.J.B. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 05]
