Mystery & Suspense • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

In the third book of a series set in the 1990s, an Austin police detective works on a murder that involves government corruption. Several additional deaths ensue; political implications arise, with an unnamed George W. Bush passing in and out of a few scenes. The two narrators struggle with the material and mostly pull it off. Tom Stechschulte, playing the protagonist cop, Dan Reles, peppers his gravelly voice with hints of irony. Sounding like James Garner in "The Rockford Files," he is particularly effective. With a higher-pitched, younger-sounding voice, Peter Jay Fernandez moves the story along with deliberate pacing, exhibiting mild emotion as appropriate. The successful performances mitigate the story line, which is grim and sad until the end. D.R.W. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2008]
