Best performer period

What about Michael Kramer’s performance did you like?

Michael Kramer breathed life and energy into each and every character. Each person had a distinct and separate personality. Michael's performance is a perfect match to this book and series. My only wish is that he read all the books in this series.

Twisted plot about twisted characters.

I enjoy the Dortmunder series of comic mysteries. This is one of the more intricate plots and more complicated than most. Not that it is believable, but at least, within its own world, it kind of makes sense, which isn't to say it isn't full of surprise twists. It ends in a satisfying way, in which nearly every crook gets what he/she deserves. Needless to say, John Dortmunder is never going to make a huge financial killing, but he'll never be without his group of friends and admirers. The narrator, Michael Cramer, does an exceptional job giving individual voices to the characters and adds enormously to the pleasure of the story.
