In the sequel to THE TALISMAN, Jack Sawyer, celebrated homicide detective, has retired from police work after a particularly disturbing case awoke memories he'd just as soon let sleep. But retirement isn't enough to escape the call of the Territories and the continuing work its inhabitants have in mind for him. Frank Muller continues his performance of the earlier story, portraying its characters twenty years later in their lives and adding new ones to the cast with his customary perfection. Muller's finest gift to audio must be his uncanny ability to sense, develop, and portray dozens of complex human and inhuman personalities in a single production. Muller has fun with some, condemns others, and renders even the bit players unforgettable. All of them dance to the seductive music of his lyrical narrative, which invites us into the party as well.
