"Those bizarre, but lovable, residents of 28 Barbary Lane, San Francisco, are back with more madcap adventures. Society columnist Prue Giroux's love affair with a homeless man leads to danger for DeDe Halcyon Day (recently released from a Cuban prison camp) and her two children; Michael "Mouse" Tolliver continues his seemingly endless quest for an emotionally satisfying love; and television personality Mary Ann Singleton's obsession with finding a major news story causes kindly Anna Madrigal to become a kidnapper. This rich tapestry of hilarious and heartfelt moments blends unexpected plot twists and action in a tableaux of San Francisco strangeness. A chorus of hurrahs for reader Barbara Rosenblat, who transforms this frothy mixture of gossip and melodrama into believable events and memorable characters. Audio is the perfect vehicle for this episodic gem. E.E.L. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
