"The latest Robinson mystery to feature Chief Inspector Alan Banks is as much a character study as an entertaining thriller. In an unusual device, Banks is on vacation for nearly half the book, leaving others to investigate matters in ways that may follow procedure but lead to complications. Banks returns to solve the mysteries that arose while he was away. Although the story meanders and the characters are rather formulaic, narrator Simon Prebble makes the most of the material. Prebble understands the value of both understatement and carefully timed emotions. For those unfamiliar with the Inspector Banks series, Prebble's performance may be the most satisfying aspect of the book. D.J.S. (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine"

"The world knows Myers as a gifted black writer. In BAD BOY, he tells us about growing up in Harlem in the 1950s. Though he was athletic and energetic, he also had a passion for reading. Secretly he haunted libraries, reading stories, pums, even philosophy as he hunted for his voice. That, even more than fighting and basketball, defined who he was. Acclaimed actor Ju Morton reads Myers's transition from "bad boy" to writer as if it were fiction. His voice is tight, sharp, at times attacking the reader, at times laughing at the ironies and complexities of growing up in Harlem. Above all, Morton makes sure we hear Myers's crisp prose. For young writers unsure of how or where to find their own voices, Myers points the way. P.E.F. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine"
