This enthralling tale of murder, lost treasure and romance is so skillfully abridged that the listener doesn't feel shortchanged. An added bonus is a fascinating interview with DeMille, who has a voice that would have been perfect for his homicide detective, John Corey. The narrator, who uses a huge repertoire of voices, unfortunately sounds like Rodney Dangerfield on occasion and uses a singsong cadence that would be very distracting if the story itself weren't riveting. When he speaks in a woman's voice, he sounds like a man trying to sound like a woman. D.T.H. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT 97]
