Petrea Burchard is delightful in this entertaining comic crime drama. Seventy-one-year-old Loretta Plansky receives a call in the middle of the night from a "grandson" in need of urgent financial assistance, so she gives him her banking information. In the morning, she discovers her bank accounts have been wiped clean. The FBI tells her there's no way to get back her three million dollars--the scammers are somewhere in Romania. As Loretta flies to Romania to find the thieves, Burchard portrays her embarrassment at having been duped and enhances her determination to get back her money. While the plot stretches credibility, Burchard is superb as Loretta, her mentally deteriorating 98-year-old father, and her worried children. Even the Eastern European gangsters are believable, thanks to Burchard's sparkling performance. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2023]
