Mystery & Suspense • 4.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Bored with his marriage and career, celebrated journalist John Glass accepts a commission to write his father-in-law's biography. He hires a shifty researcher to help, but the odd sleuth turns up dead after attempting to blackmail Glass. Figuring out who killed him might not be Glass's job, but the conclusion will shatter his world. John Keating performs the dark mystery with an Irish accent appropriate to the story's protagonists. Keating attempts to give various New York and Boston characters voices suited to their locales, with mixed success. He fares much better with the overall narrative, imbuing the entire work with the sadness, anger, and determination called for in the text. In the end, both story and performance leave the listener longing for a sequel. R.L.L. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2008]
