Victor McGlothin weaves a sophisticated, sexy story set in St. Louis, Missouri, in 1947. When playboy/hustler Baltimore Floyd comes to town, so does trouble. Ultimately, the black community must determine if it has the courage to prevent a mob's injustice. Ezra Knight seems an unlikely candidate to narrate an audiobook so fully populated by females. His smoky bass is perfectly evocative of the era and the novel’s male characters, but you expect that his voice won’t work well for the female characters. However, Knight gives each character a unique vocalization, so distinct that you forget no one speaks above the alto range. A remarkable ensemble populates this work, each one enhanced by Ezra Knight. P.R. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2010]
