Mystery & Suspense • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2000

Narrator David Thorpe's skill is apparent as Ridpath's financial thriller introduces Revere Partners, cutthroat Boston venture capitalists, and their equally ruthless Big Pharma investment. English transplant Simon Ayot's boss at Revere is also his father-in-law, Frank. Ayot is old-fashioned--in a good way--he cherishes his wife and keeps his word. Things heat up when questions arise about the safety of one of Revere's investments; then listeners are shocked when Frank is murdered. Ayot is a suspect, and his wife leaves him. As Ayot tracks the murderer, superb accents, colorful city descriptions, and office banter create an engaging atmosphere. Thorpe keeps the insider look at investing and American medicine stimulating. His best creation is Dr. Pepper-swilling Art Altschule, who is scary everytime he speaks. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2020]
