This title is an ideal showcase for Jonathan Davis, who reads with an elegance amplified by his mastery of foreign words. It is an unusual novel, a mystery in which people are being murdered by what appears to be a jaguar as revenge for their illegal development of an African jungle. It is also a book of supernatural intrigue that encompasses American, Colombian, and Cuban culture. No matter what language he's reading, Davis's performance is so polished that every character's personality is distinctive, and the reader is free to concentrate on the plot, which is, to say the least, convoluted.
