A writer sends his story to a publishing house in New York, withholding any contact information. Intrigued, editor Maris Matherly Reed decides to investigate. She uncovers a mixture of revelations about the story, the writer, and her own husband. Victor Slezak opens the low-key prologue in a slow, comfortable narration of a Florida boat party gone terribly wrong. His smoky vocal tones betray none of the bigger horror to come. As the story moves to Manhattan and back to Georgia and picks up in pace, Slezak keeps up, bringing more complexity to the characters and narrative. Occasional mispronunciations might catch your attention, but the overall effect is chilling and addictive. R.P.L. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 02]
