Mystery & Suspense • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Thompson's convoluted story tells of a troubled bookie who is trying to avoid his shady past, only to fall straight into an elaborate and deadly con game. Trying to make sense of this plot is narrator Robertson Dean, who assumes the role of protagonist Herman Jackson. Dean's voice, rich with character and mystery, gives the sense of a man with his fair share of secrets to tell. In this underplayed performance, Dean offers little in the way of improvisation and acting, opting instead to read the story in one gritty voice that tends to grate on the ears of the listener. As Jackson, Dean is perfect in his delivery, but his lack of variation for the supporting characters slows the story. L.B. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2008]
