This unusual psychological thriller from Thomas Cook allows George Guidall to show off his brilliant ability for understated narration. The police interrogation of a homeless man suspected of murdering a 10-year-old girl is profoundly melancholy. Guidall carefully crafts the voices of the two detectives, who have just 24 hours to extract a confession from the suspect. Listeners keenly feel and hear the introspection of the men, as the suspense and pressure of the deadline loom. Guidall is a precise master of the smallest nuances of hope, grief, and deep sadness. A strong and chilling story. R.F.W. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 02]
