During survival training in the wilderness, policeman Reed Shelton and his wife, Beck, are attacked and separated by unidentified creatures. Reed's voice is tremulous as he describes what happened. Peretti narrates his own imaginative story of Sasquatch, DNA mutations, cruel experiments, and cold-blooded murder. But his delivery is dry and raspy, with an unpleasant pitch and tone, even though he depicts realistic shouts, shots, and screams. His portrayal of Sasquatch's speech--grunts, tongue clicks, and a variety of growls--borders on the comical. Furthermore, Beck's vocalizations as she assimilates into the tribe bends credulity. Peretti fans will like this, but less imagination and an abridgment would make this more enjoyable for others. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 05/ JAN 06]
