At First Sight

Stephen J. Cannell, Author, Scott Brick, Read by , read by Scott Brick. Brilliance Audio $34.95 (0p) ISBN 978-1-4233-6774-1

Scott Brick turns Cannell’s over-the-top and completely stereotypical story into a rousing and endlessly exciting listening experience. Cannell’s latest tells the tale of dot-com millionaire Chick Best, a family man who becomes obsessed with a beautiful woman by the pool while on Christmas vacation. There is the spoiled housewife that spends without a care in the world, the drugged-out teenager who couldn’t care less about her parents, and the sexy, mysterious stranger who becomes the object of Best's every thought. As familiar as it all sounds, Brick offers a fantastic reading in which he delves so deeply into the character of Chick Best that he almost starts to go crazy himself. The performance is not the least bit overplayed. Brick’s uncanny ability to tear words from the page and breathe life into them is almost scary, and the end result is perhaps one of the best commercial thriller audio books in recent memory. A Vanguard Press hardcover (Reviews, May 26). (July)
