Reminiscent of Poe's "Tell-Tale Heart," this story begins with manic introspection. A man is trying to decide if he has really experienced a metaphysical event--or if he's going mad. An abrupt switch in point of view from the first person in the opening to third-person narration for the remainder of the story is a bit confusing as there is no pause or warning. But Christopher Price steps up to the storytelling delightfully as the listener delves into protagonist David's life after he witnesses a supernatural occurrence. Price captures the mortuary's crew with aplomb, as well as the doubting townspeople whom David has to deal with after he becomes a local oddity. Listeners who enjoy a modern ghost story will enjoy this. D.L.M. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 08]
