Don Leslie narrates this macabre mystery with stylistic ease, meandering through intricate characterizations, twists, and subplots with frequent black humor. His smooth voice suits prominent Defense Attorney Victor Carl, but the slow pace of the narration during the lengthy trial scenes teeters on being boring. The pace quickens when Carl meets the mysterious Dr. Bob, a dentist and compulsive busybody who operates under a law known only to him. However, moments of bad taste chosen by the author, characterized by bizarre humor, give the story a disappointing and confusing close. Accents and gender and age changes are excellent, but the pace of the presentation is uneven and the content disappoints. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 05]
