Kellerman has written a series of psycho-horror stories featuring shrink Alec Delaware and his friend, Detective Milo Sturgis. Here the two try to solve a series of grisly killings predicted by a confined mass murderer who himself has butchered an entire family. But did he? Rubinstein wisely doesn't overdramatize the narrative and reads both investigators in a normal tone--two voices of reason in a sea of insanity. His portrayals of minor characters--a gibbering inmate and a grossly overweight man--are wonderful. Well-timed pauses and sentence fragments heighten tension, which builds to a scary climax. The abridgment makes perfect sense. J.B.G. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 00]
