On the bright side, Dick Hill is back to read another Deutermann tale, and thankfully so. That's because after a promising start ( a midshipman at the U.S. Naval Acadamy plunges six stories to his death), one has to negotiate six more tapes for the action and suspense to kick into high gear. It's only Hill's creative style that holds one's attention to this story of a "Jekyll & Hyde" who appears normal by day, but stalks Annapolis by night. To Deutermann's credit, once the excitement begins, it never stops. Hill is at his best when voicing the sinister musings of the monster no one suspects. A.L.H.
