An abandoned daughter's search for vengeance in the hit-and-run death of her father fires this action-filled mystery. Narrator Paula Christensen brings just enough of a Spanish accent to the feature role of Cuban police detective Mercado Suraz to be convincing without seeming overdone or forced. Christensen also masters the necessary variations in pace and intensity while navigating numerous flashbacks and scene changes. She is less adept, however, at portraying the male characters, especially at moments of high drama and emotion. Nonetheless, McKinty and Christensen offer the listener a story filled with strong characters, situations, and language. FIFTY GRAND is definitely worth the trip.
