In The Goodbye Coast, top-notch narration by Vikas Adam transforms the iconic 1940s detective Philip Marlowe into a 21st-century PI. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile contributor Sandi Henschel discuss this new work by Joe Ide and the fun of listening to Adam’s terrific characterizations of all of the characters. Detective Marlowe is thrust into a story filled with violence, family drama, humor, romance, and clever dialogue, all well-handled by Adam—including the shocking ending.
