Norman Dietz calmly and precisely narrates this fast-paced thriller about a pseudoscientific cult, the Order of the Rings of God, lead by Father Jupiter. Dietz easily reads the Hebrew phrases used by LAPD Lieutenant Decker and his family, and listeners will learn a great deal about Orthodox Judaism. Kellerman provides many details about Decker, and Dietz's vocal characterization makes him flesh and blood. Other characters like Guru Bob and Pluto are also given distinct voices with accents, speech patterns, and natural pacing. This tangled and gruesome web of intrigue and murder climaxes when Decker's professional sidekick, Marge, effects a terrifying eleventh-hour rescue of the cult's children. Dietz's dramatization adds to the raw, explosive pain of the final standoff. S.C.A. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 01]
