Originally written in 1920, this entertaining novel benefits from the superb performance of narrator Bill Homewood. The story focuses on four men with ostensibly laudable goals who battle injustice like modern-day Robin Hoods. Yet the four remain enigmas, whose motives at time appear to be highly questionable. Because the protagonists lack sufficient individual personalities to make it easy for readers to distinguish among them, it is even harder to ascertain their ultimate goals. Fortunately, Bill Homewood demonstrates the power of a great reader. He transitions beautifully between characters and provides each with a distinctive timbre, tone, and personality, thus overcoming the novel’s limitations.
