Long-lost relative Neil Chambers returns to Maine in time for his cousin's wedding. Surprised at his arrival, the Chambers family has no idea of the horrifying surprises Neil has in store for them. George Guidall performs with subtlety and an understated creepiness that has the listener's skin crawling from the first tape. His characterizations are insightful and flawless, taking the story beyond the text. Without artifice, he conveys the underlying kindness of a shady loan collector. The story's wronged husband doesn't quite ring true, but we find out exactly why in the end. Drug pushers, law enforcement, and the members of the Chambers family come to life. Best of all, Guidall performs without a trace of a Maine accent--a choice that adds to, rather than detracts, from the production. R.P.L. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 01]
