Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by David Colacci

Mystery & Suspense • 17 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1993

This early book in the Dismas Hardy series opens with the discovery of a severed hand in the stomach of a dead shark, with only a jade ring to help identify the body—that is, until the rest of it washes up on shore. Hardy starts out as the prosecutor of the case but ends up on the side of the defense as he attempts to unravel the mystery. David Colacci is a great storyteller. The highlight of his performance is in the voices he uses for each character and the accents, both foreign and American, that suit each perfectly. In Colacci’s hands, the author’s sense of humor shines through, as do the story’s intrigue and suspense. S.S.R.
