Mystery & Suspense • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1996

For the first few minutes of this recording one may feel that Patrick Cullen's reading is far too flat and mechanical. But presently one finds oneself completely engrossed in the story and hardly aware of the reader. In short, this recording is an excellent example for those who feel that an audiobook reader should be neutral, interpreting as little as possible. In this case it works, no doubt helped by fine writing and a mystery that is more intellectual puzzle than emotional thriller. Cullen's reading is not, in fact, flat, but finely controlled understatement: intelligent and free of distractions. Unusually clear sound further enhances the transparent effortlessness of this recording. J.N. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 99]
