Mr. King, a hit man, must choose between death and art while working in Europe. Tired of his working life, he finds himself increasingly fascinated by the beauty of the world in which he resides and ponders leaving his profession once and for all. Narrator Ray Porter delivers a stellar reading, at times bleak and hopeless while also passionate and resonating. Porter’s King is a lonely man, tiring of his bloody past yet seemingly emotionless until he finds a beautiful piece of art that awakens his passion. Porter’s delivery is well paced. He creates a sympathetic character out of an otherwise evil man—a true feat in any form of performance. L.B.
