In this historical mystery set in London in 1795, a homophobic government official seeking a serial killer finds spies for the revolutionary French government disguised as astronomers. His daughter being one of the victims, the determined official enlists his gay half-brother, a timorous amateur stargazer, to infiltrate their ranks. Actor/singer Tim Curry has a beautiful, expressive instrument. He makes the most of his facility with accents and character voices. Except for some odd pronunciations and flashes of excessive melodrama, he gives an altogether satisfying and atmospheric performance. Y.R. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 01]
