Between a budding romance with a beautiful forensics investigator and visions of Von Stroheim's ghost, Valentino's madcap race to save the flick is as fast and frenetic as a classic screwball comedy.
I'm a big Estleman fan, but this one is not worth your time. It's a Scooby Doo/Hardy Boys plot, unworthy of him.
Would you consider the audio edition of Frames to be better than the print version?
Yes, as I love the way William Dufris read each character so well.
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
I was never tense, but I did want to know who had committed the crime and why. It's very intelligent and quite funny.
Which character – as performed by William Dufris – was your favorite?
The mentor is wonderful. And the secretary is priceless!
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
No single moment comes to mind, but the story as a whole touched me deeply. I will listen to it again very soon.
Any additional comments?
I am keeping watch to see when any new books come out from Loren D. Estleman. And I have a growing library read by William Dufris.
I recommend both "Alone" and "Frames". They are satisfying stories, well-read and I laughed out loud many times.
