by | Read by G. Valmont Thomas

Mystery & Suspense • 4.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1992

Originally published in 2000, this mystery introduces Sallis's private investigator, Lew Griffin. The book feels more like a short story collection than a novel as the focus is not a single mystery but many, and the various cases take place over three decades. Instead, the common thread is Griffin himself. Although he frequently finds missing persons, Griffin also struggles to find himself. Narrator G. Valmont Thomas expertly captures Griffin’s hard-boiled intensity. In addition, he draws the listener into the sultry and somber atmosphere of the French Quarter of New Orleans. The combination of Thomas's voice and Sallis’s words brings the listener into a dark world. R.F. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2010]
