by | Read by David Birney, Rex Linn, Stefan Rudnicki

Mystery & Suspense • 3.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1988

This collection is composed of three novellas of suspense, each read by a different narrator. David Birney performs "Lizard Men of Los Angeles," a pseudo-science-fiction tale of spontaneous combustion, which comes across as overwritten and overperformed. Rex Linn's narration of "Prodigal Son" offers much more in the way of entertainment. His rendition of the story's various political and carnival characters grabs the listener's attention and holds it to the end. Saving the best for last, Stefan Rudnicki captures the simultaneous depression and excitement of a music collector who finds a recording that documents Glen Miller's murder. The collector's search for provenance, and for his own redemption, shines in Rudnicki's subtle performance. R.L.L. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 06/ JAN 07]
