Mystery & Suspense • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2007

Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Griff Burkett faces hatred from the public after his release from prison for point shaving. Foster Speakman, a wealthy businessman who is paraplegic, wants to pay Griff to father a child with his wife, Laura, and pass the child off as Foster's own. The thick Texas accent that Victor Slezak provides Griff is tinged with a defensiveness that captures his resentment of the service he agrees to provide for the Speakmans. Laura's tones reflect her conflicted feelings toward Griff. Soon murder draws the two together, and as the story continues, Griff's evolution from a bitter, hardened man to a caring one is reflected in his voice as he falls in love with Laura. Slezak's ability to imbue each character with a distinctive voice is impressive. S.M. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 08]
