From AudioFile:

Phelps investigates the evidence surrounding the murder of Jeff Zack in the parking lot of BJ's Wholesale Club in Akron, Ohio. After he was killed by an unknown person clad in black, the police found many who had reasons to want Zack dead. J. Charles reads this true-crime story in even, sonorous tones. He relates the details of the investigation with deliberation. The convoluted story of betrayal, adultery, violence, and lies confounds the investigators. Did Zack's wife kill him in the heat of an argument, or was it the cuckolded husband who owned Akron's most famous nightclub? Phelps follows all the clues, and Charles recounts each twist and turn of the case. M.B.K. AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
