Walter Mosley is best known for his crime stories. With THE WAVE he proves he's just as skilled at writing science fiction/horror, and Tim Cain is just the narrator to deliver it. The story begins with a telephone call to Errol Porter from his father. The trouble is, Errol's father is long dead. Cain brings an air of innocence to his performance that is vital to the story. The listener must believe, on some level, that a confused young man somehow is Errol's father, even though it's impossible. Cain is equally adept at delivering the buttery tones of Errol's Jamaican girlfriend and the voice of the cold-hearted villain, who believes he is stopping an alien invasion.
