An African-American mother tries to protect her four teenaged sons as they grow up in Harlem. Losing one to drugs and another to homicide, she is determined to save her remaining sons from the grasp of a horrific demon. Patricia Floyd gives an expert performance in this supernatural thriller. Even as the narrative shifts from mystery to the realm of the supernatural, Floyd carefully guides the listener. This is no small feat, for like the Latin-American novelists who immerse their tales in magical realism, the novel can veer to the incredible. Whether she plays the lurking monster or the distraught mother, Floyd's performance makes the terror palpable. A great choice. P.R. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 07]
