BAD THINGS HAPPEN

by | Read by Erik Davies

Mystery & Suspense • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Layers of mystery and interlocking stories could make this a difficult listen were it not for the skills of narrator Erik Davies. He carefully characterizes hero David Loogan as a mysterious, evasive sort. This sets up questions, creates tension, and provides a rationale that defines both the plot and the protagonist. Davies's enigmatic portrayal makes sense of curious situations—for example, Loogan’s acting like a savvy dupe as he helps his boss, mystery journal owner Tom Kristoll, bury a body. Davies also projects Loogan's firm sense of justice, eye for detail, and determination. This cross section of personality traits anchors listeners to a consistent vision of the character as Davies's convincing minor characters work to make Loogan the fall guy for mounting body counts.
