Mystery & Suspense • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Con man Charlie Marsh manages to parlay a prison incident in which he saved the warden's life into a book called THE LIGHT WITHIN YOU, which generates a huge following. While on a book tour, Charlie has an affair with Congressman Arnold Pope, Jr.'s, wife. When Arnie ends up dead, Charlie flees to Batanga, Africa. Jonathan Davis uses his clear, low-pitched voice to depict the array of characters entangled in Charlie's life: Batangans, U.S. congressmen, New Yorkers, and the novel’s heroes, a father-daughter team of lawyers, Frank and Amanda Jaffe. Davis is adept at providing unique, realistic voices, and his reading conveys all the story’s suspense, drama, and emotions—not only in the courtroom but in the intrigue surrounding two dangerous people who want Charlie dead. Plot twists and a strong narration keep listeners engaged. S.C.A. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2009]
