Adam Grupper's careful narration reveals each clue as it unravels and leads to a new puzzle. His breathy whisper skillfully characterizes the sinister villain, the "Conjurer," and gives listeners a chill down the spine. Through sleight of hand and misdirection, the Conjurer gives Lincoln Rhyme and company both physical and psychological illusions to deal with. Following the path of the masterful killer, listeners try to figure out where the plot may be going. Just when they think they have the answer, a new twist is added. Cleverly written by Deaver, and skillfully read by Grupper, this combination creates an escapade to remember. D.L.M. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 03]
