Dick Hill's reading of this fascinating sequel to THE RELIC builds the suspense and horror. Two skeletons locked in a bony embrace are found deep in the mud off Manhattan's shoreline. Abnormalities in the skeleton point to "Mbwun," or the Museum Monster's, return. From FBI Pendergast's Southern drawl to the New York accent of D'Agosta, Hill's portrayal of each character is complete and easily identifiable. The production technique of changing the vocal quality when a character "thinks" rather than "speaks" is used to good effect here. While this will surely be a regional hit, horror and mystery fans will enjoy this tale, as well. S.C.A. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 02]
