"Boutsikaris does a standout job of bringing Black's characters to life. Thug or cop, heiress or moll, he gives them all distinct voices that fit well with the book's Chandleresque prose and dialogue." --Publisher's Weekly "Dennis Boutsikaris narrates with marvelous aplomb. He nails the cool but inviting tone, the clipped tempo, the razor and the velvet of such a tale. He differentiates between characters without overacting, and does a more than passable female - shades of Lauren Bacall, in fact. This is a perfect weekend listen." --AudioFile Magazine "Black's dialogue is spot-on, as is David Boutsikaris' perfectly paced performance." --BookPage "An ear treat that's solidly constructed, highly entertaining, and unquestionably Chandleresque." --Mystery Scene
