REVIEWS

Praise for The Assassin

"Dennis Boutsikaris packs his presentation with a dazzling variety of accents and characters of both genders. However, he is at his best as Carmellini. Boutsikaris provides a unique vocal identity with an expression and tempo that match Tommy's wiseacre attitude. With just a little imagination, listeners get the feeling they are sharing a beer with Carmellini while Tommy tells his fascinating story. It doesn't get much better than this."--AudioFile on The Traitor, Winner of the Earphones award for truly exceptional presentations
