    The Buckmaster Gallery is staging another Derwatt exhibition, but now an American collector claims that the expensive masterpiece he bought three years ago is a fake. It is, of course, and he wants to talk to Derwatt, but Derwatt, inconveniently, is dead. Ripley needs the perfect solution to keep his role in the fraud a secret and his reputation clean, but not everyone's nerves are as steady as his. Especially when it comes to murder.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I will parrot Christopher from B.C. in his review...the plot should be more plausible.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Patricia Highsmith again?

    Yes.


    What does Kevin Kenerly bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Kenerly has a great ability to voice specific affect.


    Was Ripley Underground worth the listening time?

    Yes...but I hope the next installment will be a 'tighter' storyline.

    The feds want Miami bookmaker Harry Arno to squeal on his wiseguy boss. So they're putting word out on the street that Arno's skimming profits from "Jimmy Cap" Capotorto - which he is, but everybody does it. He was planning to retire to Italy someday anyway, so Harry figures now's a good time to get lost. U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens knows Harry's tricky - the bookie ditched him once in an airport while in the marshal's custody - but not careful.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Mr. Leonard has the best characters and usually has a story to match with few exceptions.


    Which character – as performed by Alexander Adams – was your favorite?

    Justified made me a Raylan Givens fan but Harry Arno is so unlikeable you have to love him.


    Any additional comments?

    I became an Elmore Leonard fan late in the game and Pronto is catch up.

    When Spenser accepts a job as a "bodyguard" for a beautiful young woman, he gets in way over his head.

    Richard Delman says: "Spenser is a pleasure"
    "Once you hear Joe Mantegna as Spenser..."

    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    ...no one else will do.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoy all Spenser and Stone novels, so this was 'required' reading for me.
