Gerritsen's story is part mystery, part romance and part medical thriller. Poe's reading heightens the tension and shock with variations in pacing, volume and emphasis. While never attempting a real Maine accent, Poe portrays the locals of Tranquility from the point of view of heroine Dr. Claire Elliot, an outsider from Baltimore. With skill and grace and a rich baritone, Poe engrosses listeners in the terror of a tourist town whose economic base is tied to Lake Locust, which may be the source of the green phosphorescence that turns teenagers into raging, murderous maniacs! Spine-tingling, can't put-it-down or turn-it-off escapist entertainment is to be found here. S.C.A. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 99]
