Jeff Woodman

2008 Best Voice in FICTION & CLASSICS: The Air We Breathe, The Little Book

Listeners are happy to spend hours upon hours with Jeff Woodman. He's a master of accents and emotional subtleties and brings a youthful energy to his recordings. We delight in the wide variety of vocal portraits Jeff has made unforgettable: the eccentric characters of Savannah in MIDNIGHT IN THE GARDEN OF GOOD AND EVIL, the Indian zookeeper of THE LIFE OF PI, the eighteenth-century Italian statesman of THE VENETIAN AFFAIR, the autistic adolescent of THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME—along with the less exotic but equally challenging kids in the best young adult novels. Jeff loves the challenge of dialects and says he "carries them in his back pocket," ready to nail the accent of any character, whether a Southern belle or a Canadian pigeon-keeper. To producer Paul Ruben, Jeff's most compelling quality is "his intuitive ability to empathize with characters and the author's point of view and, in turn, connect with his listeners, enabling them to suspend their disbelief and become fully involved with the story and the storyteller."

One evening in Washington, DC, several high-ranking members of government disappear in a mass kidnapping. Among the kidnapped is Nick Rendel, a computer software coding expert in charge of drone programming and strategy. If revealed, his kidnappers could reprogram the drones to strike targets within the United States. Jon Smith and the Covert One team begin a worldwide search to recover the officials, but as the first kidnapping victims are rescued, they show disturbing signs of brainwashing or mind-altering drugs.
