James reads in a rich baritone with an almost lackadaisical style. Even when reporter and heroine Jane Day is "on deadline," the pacing is smooth and concise, not rushed. Nessen and Neuman develop several superb characters in this classic whodunit involving Carla Caldwell, an aging movie star, who dies backstage at the Kennedy Center. Black detective A.L. Jones is brought to life by James's portrayals as the story reveals some of the D.C. Police Department's problems. Politics, Hollywood glitz, McCarthyism, and murder make the perfect mix.
