Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Gerard Doyle

Mystery & Suspense • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

A near-perfect marriage of fiction and performance, THE BLOOMSDAY DEAD is a must-listen. Actor Gerard Doyle inhabits the narrator, an Irish ne’er-do-well with a heart of gold, Michael Forsythe. An international traveler and mercenary/criminal/dealer of justice and death, Forsythe is portrayed by Doyle in an intimate virtuoso performance that intensifies the taut, gritty writing. Every nuance of the protagonist’s soul lives in the read; listeners will be grasping for the following CD lest they lose the energy of the story. Whether we are hearing Forsythe, his enemies, comrades, cops, kids, or women, there is never a lack of distinct personality in this soaring, tragic story. D.J.B.
