Johnson, a pathologist studying AIDS victims, had performed hundreds of autopsies before that fateful night when he cut himself on a scalpel and quickly developed the infection. This story relates how he saved himself from a sure slide towards AIDS. The smoothly polished reading conveys this gripping tale with conviction and just a hint of inflection. When the epilogue is read by the author in a monotone, it becomes clear that the reader's inflection adds needed energy to the performance. The graphic descriptions of the autopsy that caused Johnson's infection are not for the faint of heart. A.G.H. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 01]
