Mystery & Suspense • 15 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2001

When Scott Brick plunges into Mystic River, he does so with artistry and grace. This is a haunting, suspenseful, psychological thriller that calls for a multiplicity of reading talents--and Brick displays them all. One of three 11-year-olds playing together is abducted and molested by two pedophiles, released after four days, but is never the same person he was before. Fast-forward twenty-five years, and the daughter of one of the other boys is savagely murdered. The slaying brings all three into a complex, dark, emotional drama, which teaches that the past can never be totally forgotten. Brick brings it all together in an almost perfect reading. He switches emotions in an instant. Whether a character is pleading for his life or drowning in alcohol, his performance flows smoothly--right down to the end. Mystic River is the kind of book that allows the performer to shine, and Brick does. A.L.H. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 01]
