Winding, convoluted plot with good character development (including all the old favorite characters, Butch, Marlene, Lucy and the twins). Too bad this was an abridged version. Well worth hearing nonetheless, particularly for Butch Karp/Marlene Ciampi fans.

The story was very predictable and the writing bordered on corny. The reading didn't do anything to add to the marginal book. Bottom line, it wasn't worth the time or money for this one.
