Narrator Robin Miles enlivens this memoir of Doris Payne, a notorious African-American jewel thief who was active for more than 50 years. Miles rises to the level of Southern charm exhibited by Payne--which is a remarkable feat. Filled with brashness and boldness, her story, which reads like a novel, will likely remind listeners of recent, and not so recent, "jewel heist" films. Payne, no stranger to segregation, prejudice, and poverty, resolved to raise her level of abundance, and so she did. Miles's on-point performance closes any distance between writer and narrator. This personal story does not shy away from examining international attitudes toward racial issues. W.A.G. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2019]
