Sean Barrett's masterful presentation echoes pathologist John Eisenmenger's manner as he becomes increasingly frustrated by his boss, Arnold Throckmorton, at St. Christopher's Hospital. As suspicious deaths pile up and all paths seem to lead to an allergy clinic, Atopia, run by Dr. Adam Dreifus, Eisenmenger takes his concerns to an old friend, DI Beverley Wharton. Characters are well developed by McCarthy and inspire pity, terror, and empathy. Barrett is adept at using subtle vocal changes to create easily identifiable characters among the large cast. The result is a listening experience that will especially appeal to those who relish forensic details in their mysteries. S.C.A. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2009]
