Fiction • 16 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

This audiobook has it all--mystery, mayhem, and sci-fi in a story that flashes forward and back as it revels in the lost world of late 1970s Manhattan. Narrator Rebecca Lowman presents the many complex characters at just the right pace. She carefully delivers the various voices--male and female, accented and not--and keeps the reality-stretching doings moving along. Lowman particularly illuminates the character of Hazel Saltwater, an introspective, damaged seer whose life is indelibly marked by events that take place on the night of February 6 during the Blizzard of '78. The plot stems from the drug-addled and dangerous goings-on in the Upper West Side Apelles building--itself a kind of character in this complex and metaphor-rich story.
