When friends rally around a dying Patrick Fenman, they decide that the only way to save him is to call upon mentor, philosopher, and healer Marcus Vallar to lift the curse he placed on the man. To everyone's amazement, Vallar raises Fenman from the dead and throws everyone in Fenman's life on a spiraling path of faith-healing and metaphysics. Carrington MacDuffie gives a fantastic performance, carrying the book through cumbersome philosophical discussions and straightforward drama with equal ease. Each character has a distinct and appropriate voice, making the profuse dialogue a pleasure to hear. As the drama unfolds, along with the loves, betrayals, and intricate triangles, MacDuffie rises to the occasion, taking the listener along for the ride through Murdoch's strange world. H.L.S.
