Mystery & Suspense • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Lehane returns to characters Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro, last heard in 1999 in PRAYERS FOR RAIN. Narrator Jonathan Davis hits the accents hard so there's no mistaking that Patrick and Angie haven't strayed far from their Boston roots. In fact, an old case ignites Patrick's passionate sense of justice, and he's back in the game of chasing gangsters and thieves. Davis keeps listeners on track, but the unfortunate choice of a heavy-handed accent for Patrick's interior narrative is consistently jarring. Lehane's elegant, crisp writing, sharp wit, and great characters are not obscured, but a lighter touch with the ever-challenging Boston accents would have made this more memorable listening.
