THE PRODIGAL SON A Carmine Delmonico Mystery, Book 4

by | Read by Lewis Hancock

Mystery & Suspense • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

In 1969, the marriage between black Jim Hunter and his blonde wife, Millie, is met with unspoken ostracism, even in their circle of research scientists. An expert in lethal poisons, Millie announces that her groundbreaking blowfish toxin has disappeared from her closet-sized research lab, and then two murders rapidly occur in their small academic community. Narrator Lewis Hancock applies straightforward voices for Jim and Millie, and shines in his subtle characterization of Captain Carmine Delmonico, the police detective at the center of McCullough’s whodunit series. Hancock provides more colorful portrayals for a manipulative Yugoslavian trophy wife and a buttoned-up university president, both suspects in the murders. Even in academic circles, the lust for power can result in tragedy. N.M.C. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2013]
