The Power Trip

Jackie Collins, read by Jackie Collins, Sydney Tamiia Poitier, Holter Graham, Euan Morton, and January LaVoy. MacMillan Audio, unabridged, 11 CDs, 13.5 hrs., $39.99 ISBN 978-1-4272-2926-7
This latest steamy tale from Collins centers on a luxurious cruise featuring an elite group of men and women from the realms of politics, business, entertainment, and sports who must face both their own scandals and the threat of an international band of pirates. The full cast—led by Collins herself—certainly brings vocal talent to the production, offering a broad range of performance styles. As the voices and accents for characters shift with each narrator, this variety will either prove energizing or dizzying, depending on the listener’s taste. In the case of one particularly despicable villain—the sexually reckless Senator Hammond Patterson—it is interesting to hear the narrators’ different renderings. Collins’s performance captures the titillating tone of her own brand nicely, setting the stage for the rest of the cast to apply their craft as the storyline unfolds. Porter and Graham shine as they tackle the range of emotions and larger-than-life personalities. A St. Martin’s hardcover. (Feb.)
