What happens when you've unearthed a flu-like disease that has been dormant for millions of years? In Greg Bear's thriller, a molecular biologist and a "virus hunter" find an ancient, concealed mass grave in Russia and unravel the mystery of the disease within before its next evolutionary step toward world destruction. Stefan Rudnicki gives a steady performance as scientists Kaye Lang and Christopher Dicken, as well as incorporates convincing foreign accents for supporting roles. His melodious baritone, however, offers a limited range, which could leave listeners a little numb at times. Overall, DARWIN'S RADIO succeeds in asking enticing questions about human evolution and impermanence. R.A.P. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 00]
