Gideon Emery begins the story of a man who stumbles upon a murder in conspiratorial tones. Adam Kindred, who makes the ill-advised decision to flee the scene instead of notifying authorities, disappears into a London underworld where he steals and begs to survive while being pursued by the police and a relentless hit man. Emery finds the dark humor that helps enliven this standard premise and seems to delight in the voices of the streets: the surly assassin, the prostitute who shelters Adam, the diverse immigrants (for whom he provides an array of accents), and the drag queen. Outstanding use of character voices and accents elevates what could be a banal story. B.V.M. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2010]
