There are at least four major falls in this story--some from innocence, some from the rock faces of mountains. They all do their damage. Rob Dewar and Jamie Mathewson are passionate about climbing, perhaps because the late father of one of them was a famous mountaineer. Their mothers and the late climber knew each other well in youth--how well, and how much the past has to do with the present, unfolds as if this story were a piece of origami, apparently a simple story of friendship, but actually a layered structure of bends and folds, concealing many truths. Robert Glenister's performance is as nuanced and masterful as the plot, making for a thoroughly absorbing experience. B.G. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 05]
