The Dame: An Alan Grofield Novel

Richard Stark, read by R.C. Bray. AudioGO, unabridged, digital download, 4.75 hrs., $19.95 ISBN 978-1-62064-358-7
Written by Donald E. Westlake under the pen name Richard Stark, this classic crime novel follows hot-blooded actor Alan Grofield (an associate of Stark’s more famous protagonist Parker) to Puerto Rico, where he must look after a wealthy woman and solve a mystery. R.C. Bray reads in a stern, cold, and gritty tone that fits perfectly with the tale’s dark overtones. His delivery is fast and sharp, coming at you like a freight train that forces you to either hop on board or jump out of the way. Luckily, Bray makes it easy to jump on board, and the numerous twists and turns that pop up along the way only serve to further engage listeners. And, Bray’s character interpretations are simple, understated, and realistic. A definite must for Stark fans. A University Of Chicago paperback. (May)
