Rick Beanblossom, an investigative reporter, and his wife, a beautiful television anchor, are themselves catapulted into the news when their one-year-old son is kidnapped and held for ransom in a crime eerily reminiscent of the Lindbergh baby kidnapping. Guidall is at his best narrating this highly suspenseful story. The listener can't help but get caught up in the excitement, which is magnified by the sometimes breathless performance. The voices are utterly convincing and, despite frequent flashbacks to the Lindbergh case, are maintained so well that there's never any doubt who is speaking. The intensity of the drama is enhanced by Guidall's superb reading. S.S.R. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
