Ildrecca is a dangerous city, if you don't know what you're doing. It takes a canny hand and a wary eye to run these streets and survive. Fortunately, Drothe has both.

"Drothe is a "nose," an information gatherer, for the criminal masterminds who run the city. He earns extra money on the side, running small con jobs for himself. When he acquires a rare, magical book in one of his cons, all manner of very bad people come after the book, and after Drothe. Kirby Heyborne seems to have taken his inspiration from 1930s gangster movies. His thieves speak with steely resolve, and his crime lords may have some Edward G. Robinson in their DNA. His performance improves upon an already good book; a caper about a smart thief is read by a true professional. Listeners will root for this thief--as long as he's portrayed by Heyborne. G.D.
