When Detroit Private Investigator Amos Walker agrees to help retrieve a priceless medieval illuminated manuscript called "The Hours of the Virgin," he expects the job to be routine and short-lived. However, when someone tries to kill him and corpses start turning up, he realizes that the case has ties to the unsolved murder of his partner twenty years before. Kenneth delivers a fully voiced performance that isn't always successful. The voice of Amos Walker is good, but differentiating some of the other characters is difficult at times because of the similarity of voices. But the voice of Strangeways, supposedly British/South African, misses the mark entirely and comes off sounding more akin to German. The plot is intriguing, with plenty of twists and turns captured nicely by Kenneth, who varies the pacing and injects just the right note of excitement and drama to keep the listener tuned in.
