From AudioFile:

Leslie Beck is a life force to be reckoned with. He's dealt happiness and pain to four women and held emotional sway over them. No matter that they go on with their lives; Leslie the Lucky still has the power to taunt or daunt. The challenge for Jacqueline King is to narrate a story told by many different characters, and she performs faultlessly. Each woman has her own eccentricity of speech, whether it be accent or timbre. This makes the novel easier to listen to than to read. King's reading is very intimate and is best heard on a headset because one needs to keep one's hand on the volume to catch all the delicacy.
