Narrator John Rubinstein has portrayed child psychologist Alex Delaware, LAPD homicide detective Milo Sturgis, and Alex's live-in girlfriend, Robin Castagna, for several years. This police procedural is really historical research on the murder victim, nearly 100-year old Thalia Mars. Rubinstein delivers the excellent descriptions of the luxurious Aventura hotel, various bars, and apartments like he's actually there. Funny, sounding almost lighthearted at times, Rubinstein also provides appropriate variations in pacing and tone. The intricate plot is filled with twists and turns, and includes a final surprise at the end. Rubinstein seems to enjoy narrating this engaging mystery populated with old-time gangsters, a femme fatale, a long-ago jewel heist, and hidden treasure. Listeners will be delighted with the story and with Rubinstein's presentation. S.C.A. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2017]
