Avis de l'équipe

Brian Nishii brings a sense of dramatic urgency to bestselling author Howard Fast’s 1967 mystery novel, The Case of the Angry Actress.

Fast’s novel stars Masao Masuto, a second-generation Japanese-American detective, who also happens to be Buddhist. In this case, Matsuo needs to untangle the secrets that lie behind the mysterious death of a Hollywood studio executive. Fast, the screenwriter for the Oscar-winning 1960 film Spartacus, writes about Hollywood from an insider’s perspective.

Nishii offers an engaged performance, his voice growing in intensity and shifting for his distinct characterizations.

Description

Detective Masuto investigates a Hollywood mogul’s sudden death.

The residents of Beverly Hills tend to underestimate a Buddhist homicide detective, and Masao Masuto is happy to let them make that mistake. A second-generation Japanese-American, he relishes the thrill of a puzzling murder case. And Masuto will need all his powers of deduction to understand the murder of Al Greenberg.

The producer was giving a party when his heart stopped. After years of bad health, Greenberg’s abrupt death is no surprise. But one of the dead man’s producing partners claims to have overheard an unknown woman taunting Greenberg, while he pleaded, "put that gun away and give me my medicine." It appears Greenberg was frightened to death. To find the killer, Masuto must dig into the darkest secrets of the mogul’s past. Greenberg will not be the last to die.

Another chance... maybe?

By the end, I just wanted the story to be over. I'm chalking it up to a gaggle of unlikeable characters, so will consider another book in the series, but not soon. Audio narration excellent.
