Mystery & Suspense • 12.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Expert pacing is the key to Charles Leggett’s reading of the third Carmine Delmonico mystery, set in 1968 Holloman, Connecticut. Police captain Delmonico struggles with problems at home, a new detective trainee, a serial rapist/murderer, and the kidnapping of a foreign national. What ties these disparate threads together is Leggett’s ability to draw the listener in with his accents—German and British as well as the deeper, sarcastic East Coast accents used for the Holloman detectives. Leggett builds on the action scenes with his eerily calm portrayal of the murderer. He adds to the story’s tension by drawing the scenes out slowly and then increasing his pace as the climax plays out. E.N. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2011]
