A sermon on the struggle between good and evil is expressed in a metaphorical thriller. Young, innocent Kevin is a seminarian with a dark past. "Slater," a mysterious psycho, calls him on his cell phone and threatens bomb-delivered mayhem unless Kevin confesses to a past sin. But what sin? Slater gives him clues in the form of riddles. Can his angelic childhood sweetheart and the brilliant lady FBI agent who also loves him help him out of this nightmare? There are plenty of thrills and chills and a moral lesson to boot, but not much by way of good writing or sophistication. Rob Lamont gives a spirited, albeit occasionally eccentric, reading in a sandy, mature baritone. He doesn't do much with characterization, but there's not much characterization for him to grab onto.
