Fearless Vincent D'Agosta and quirky Aloysius Pendergast are front and center in this thriller involving urban terror. William Smithback, a NEW YORK TIMES reporter, and his wife, Nora Kelly, an anthropologist at the Museum of Natural History, are attacked in their apartment, seemingly by their creepy neighbor, Colin Fearing. However, Fearing's body was found floating in the Harlem River 10 days earlier. Scott Brick narrates with restraint and convincingly finds good regional accents for the characters. With skillful pauses he ratchets up the tension in just the right spots. A religious cult that practices animal sacrifice and reanimation of the dead is made real by Brick's matter-of-fact narration.
