Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Sklar, speaking in no-nonsense bass tones, portrays tragic hero Joe Marlin flawlessly, adopting a bravado that comes through loud and clear…Sklar delivers the more vulnerable passages with equal excellence, absent of sentimentality and with a lingering sense of hope. As well, his reading sets just the right tone, conjuring up gritty, dark scenes reminiscent of 1940s films. It is hoped that the resurgent popularity of noir novels will result in more audio versions of other classics. If only Sklar could narrate them all in his seductive tones.” Booklist (starred audio review)
“This tale displays Block’s craft as a master storyteller, which later matured into his Matthew Scudder and Bernie Rhodenbarr novels. Veteran reader Alan Sklar, who has performed on other Block audiobooks, is superb, presenting the work in an engaging manner. Highly recommended.” Library Journal (audio review)
“The narrative is layered with detail, the action is handled with Block’s distinctive clarity of style, and the ending is a stunning tour de force.” New York Times
