When archaeologist Nora Kelly is called to a building site where a long-buried body is found, she little expects to be embarking on the path of a mystery that will lead back to the last century, with danger reaching into the present. This is an intense and interesting story, entwining the quest for eternal life with the history of America, New York, and present-day politics and influence. Rene Auberjonois crafts his narration with great care; each word is voiced with perfect tone, pitch, and emotion, and each character is provided with a fitting personality. The result is narration that flows beautifully while providing insight into the story and those who inhabit it. Satisfyingly imbued with thrills and suspense, the prose is fully realized in Auberjonois’s performance, and he even manages to make some of the more fantastic aspects seem reasonable. A totally engrossing experience. M.A.M. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 03]
