THE MAN IN MY BASEMENT

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Ernie Hudson

Mystery & Suspense • 5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

Charles Blakey has fallen on hard times. Out of work, heavily in debt, drinking too much, Blakey, a black man, worries about holding on to his family home in Sag Harbor. When a strange white man offers him $50,000 to rent his basement for the summer, Blakey can’t refuse. What’s the catch? Anniston Bennet wants to be imprisoned for the duration of his stay. Ernie Hudson’s performance turns Blakey’s dilemma into an exploration of perversity, punishment, repentance, and redemption. His accomplished handling of the exchanges between the two men resonates with truth. Hudson is compelling as Blakey wrestles with the seductiveness of power. In a departure from his popular Easy Rawlins mysteries, Walter Mosley presents a fascinating, if disturbing, look into the human soul. S.J.H.
