It's unfortunate that a production this good should be somewhat spoiled by the lack of any indication of contents on the package or the individual cassettes. Most of these stories are so enthralling that you would like to find them again at a later date. That said, the four readers do a stupendous job getting inside a lot of twisted characters and plots. The mild-mannered fisherman, the suitor who kidnaps his "love," the woman struggling to hold onto her dead husband's business--these and many others will keep you guessing. A personal favorite involves a controlling father, terrified daughter, and gibbering stalker--all voiced by Stechschulte. Try the CD version; it might be better marked. J.B.G.
