Daniel Henning gives a compelling narration of this dark fantasy novella. The story follows Johann, a supernatural human-like monster who kills people for his own pleasure and education. Johann plans to murder Herr Leikenbloom, but they wind up unlikely cohorts in a revenge scheme against those who wronged them. Henning fully commits to this tale, providing a nearly breathless and deliciously evil-sounding narration while also developing unique voices and presenting surprisingly layered characters. Squeamish listeners should look elsewhere, though. This audiobook verges on the grotesque and is a difficult listen, despite its relatively short length. Those willing to stick around will find that the story is well served by Henning's theatrical performance. A.T.N. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2019]
