Narrator B.D. Wong takes on the character of Tommy Phan, a Vietnamese immigrant trying to escape a home-brewed spell run amok. The story races through a terror-filled night as Tommy and his new friend, Deliverance Payne, try to outsmart a demon bent on murder. The many and varied facets of the tale, including suspense, family power struggles and New-Age spiritism, all come to life under Wong's expert narration. With subtle variations in tempo, tone and even volume, he keeps the listener riveted as the astonishing plot unfolds. Koontz's multicultural characters shine with distinct personalities, delivered with skilled inflection. Wong offers both popular American slang and foreigners' pronunciation of English with equal skill. Even the dog has a life of it's own. R.P.L.
