Eighty-two-year-old New Yorker Sheldon Horowitz, retired and now living in Oslo, is an unlikely hero. Narrator Sean Mangan is matchless in delivering this story, which continually shifts in time and demands diverse accents and emotional range. He’s spot-on every time! When Sheldon hears a violent fight, he steps in to help an orphaned Albanian child. As man and boy flee, Sheldon's family, the police, and criminals trail them. There are laughs, along with painful looks at war, history, and cruelty in this elegant multilayered story. Mangan inhabits the indomitable Sheldon; the tough but endearing cop, Sigrid; and various “ghosts” from the past who help guide Sheldon. This gem could easily become many listeners’ favorite audiobook of the year. S.G.B. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2013]
