BY RICHARD RUSSO
Mark Bramhall's gorgeous narration of this deeply satisfying novel makes me wonder what it would be like for a great symphonic conductor to play all the instruments himself. Bramhall is superbly skilled and has a beautiful voice with amazing range, but what astonishes here is his humanity, not to mention sense of humor, as he brings Russo's entire town of North Bath, New York, to madcap life. Russo has never been better than in this virtuoso revisit to the scene of his earlier book NOBODY'S FOOL--this time starring the gormless police chief, Douglas Raymer. The plot builds, slowly at first, over two action-packed days until all the storylines pay off like the best and funniest fireworks show ever. Watch out for the escaped cobra. B.G.

"Bramhall, one of the best narrators of audiobooks, performs marvels with this one. He manages to take Grant, Abraham Lincoln and other historical figures and invest their voices with appropriate accents and emotions, so that there’s no chance for interest to flag. His reading is the touch that makes this excellent audiobook truly superior."
