Estleman's stories--featuring Detroit private eye Amos Walker--are completely satisfying. In THE GLASS HIGHWAY, the fourth in the series, Walker is hired by a local news anchorman to find his estranged son. Alan Zimmerman, whose narrative style has just the right edge of dry wit to capture Estleman's style, reads this production with considerable success. Where Zimmerman fails is with his portrayal of several of the novel's characters, including the narrator/hero himself. Zimmerman delivers Amos Walker's first-person narration with perfect tone and unstrained voice. But when Zimmerman reads Walker's dialogue, he gives the PI an inconsistent growl. He also overplays the accent of a South American woman whose Hispanic accent, we are told, is undetectable. S.E.S. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 01]
