In this follow-up to Tapper's HELLFIRE CLUB, narrator Rob Shapiro portrays Congressman Charlie Marder and his wife, Margaret, in a convivial style as they navigate a Cold War world. The couple visits Hollywood and advises filmmakers on the shooting of THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE, starring Frank Sinatra. Shapiro relishes portraying "Ol' Blue Eyes" and the outlandish and bawdy behavior of his Rat Pack buddies. Tapper's page-turner reveals corruption and adds layers to the personalities of boldface names like Robert Kennedy, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr., and others. Shapiro adds a tinge of imitation to the well-known voices but not enough to distract from the roller-coaster plot. Sinatra sings "The Devil May Dance," but Tapper calls the key, tempo, and final crescendo. R.O. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2021]
