Narrator Edoardo Ballerini steps smoothly into the role of Archer, an ex-con who is looking for work as a private investigator. Narrator Brittany Pressley portrays Liberty Callahan, a sexy beauty who craves stardom. As they travel to California, they fall knee deep into a 1940s-style whodunit with more dead bodies than they can count. Ballerini and Pressley's delivery of dialogue is inspired. Each character sounds unique--whether it is the punk sent to beat up Archer or the town's wealthiest woman demanding justice. They are a duet of perfection, smoothly switching tone and timbre when necessary. As the twisting plot keeps listeners engaged, Ballerini and Pressley's performance--to use a 1940s expression--"takes the cake"! E.E.S.
