A British professor visits the ancestral home in Transylvania, now part of post-Communist Romania, with eerie consequences. Written in an epistolary style purposely harkening back to Stoker's DRACULA, this spookfest adds modern riffs, dimensional characters and a sense of humor to the Gothic tradition. Narrator Kay nicely orchestrates tension and vivifies the characters. Though never sluggish, he is particularly measured, sometimes infuriatingly so. However, that is a minor flaw in an otherwise entirely satisfactory thriller. Y.R. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 00]
