The latest entry in Dunning's series about Cliff Janeway, ex-policeman turned antiquarian book dealer, has Janeway investigating a murder in the Colorado Rockies. The victim's widow has confessed, but only an impossibly dim deputy sheriff believes her confession. The assemblage of characters doesn't really test George Guidall's remarkable range, yet all are convincing. His narrative links, told in Janeway's voice, are a study in warm, well-paced clarity. Of particular note is his portrayal of an elderly small-town lawyer, which reveals a subtle virtuosity. Listeners are guaranteed to stay tuned-in throughout and may want to check out Dunning's most well-known Janeway mystery, BOOKED TO DIE.
