Despite the un-Leonard setting that initiates the story line--the Hutu massacre of Tutsis in Rwanda--Leonard fans will love this book. The action soon returns to Detroit, with a charity fundraising scam taking center stage. There is never a shortage of oddball, sleazy characters in a Leonard novel. The convoluted plot introduces a wide variety of bad guys, all intent on making a dishonest dollar. Ron McLarty gives the work a calm and understated reading that conveys the author's style and direction without getting in the way of the story. His individual voices do not span a large range, but they are always distinguishable. His pace maintains the suspense, holding the listener's attention to the last plot turn.
