Mystery & Suspense • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1998

It's a rare treat when a talented author can do justice to performing his own work aloud. Mystery Writers of America Grand Master and author of more than fifty novels Lawrence Block narrates this novel with grace and ease. TANNER ON ICE resurrects the hero of THE THIEF WHO COULDN'T SLEEP (1966) in this clever tale of an insomniac soldier of fortune who awakens from a twenty-five-year cryonic slumber to find that he's missed out on Watergate, personal computers, political correctness and the end of the Cold War. What's more, he's tossed headlong into a mystery involving stolen artifacts and revolution in Burma. One wouldn't expect Block's dry, undramatic speaking style to shine in the spoken arts. But he's perfectly matched to his witty writing style, to which he adds excellent pacing and a bohemian tone. S.E.S. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 99]
