Jessica's life seems perfect: She has a job she loves at the MIAMI HERALD; a beautiful daughter; and David, the sophisticated, accomplished man who is her soul mate and husband. For David, it is perfect too; thus, since he is actually an immortal, part of an Ethiopian brotherhood, he will risk everything so that he will not lose his family--as he has lost his families so often before. This gripping, complex story is compellingly original, and the listener can't help but suspend disbelief. Peter Francis James's rich and sensuous voice, his ability to capture all the emotional nuances, his facility with the French conversations that David has with his daughter, and the personalities he crafts all enhance the story. He maintains the suspense and terror that builds as Jessica flees David with her daughter, and throughout the long narration his performance is always just what the prose requires. The interview with the author at the end piques the listener's interest in the sequel. Unforgettable. M.A.M.
