Smart jazz. Smooth voices. And a curse that could have something to do with “headhunting”—like hiring executives, or “headhunting” like, you know, shrinking heads and eating brains. In their first full-length adventure, private eyes Phineas Sparks and Taylor Dixon, voiced with easy charm by Daryl Edwards and Karen Evans Kandel, take on a case that leads from Wall Street to a lost world of mystical, and perhaps deadly, primitive art. There’s no independent producer quite like the ZBS Foundation in the audiobook industry. They blend superior stereo quality and original music with gentle humor and insightful acting and writing. So, put on your headphones, close your eyes, and listen right through to the last second of this aural feast. The “ah-ha” ending sounds just as extraordinary as the rest of the production. B.P.
