A new and intelligent spin on the serial killer genre, Ablow's novel seethes with obsessive-compulsive lust, loyalty, and religious fervor within the rarefied air of moneyed Yale graduates. Ablow's prose would be demanding of any reader, but Denis O'Hare has little trouble separating characters by tone, accent, mannerism, or intent. He also expertly conveys the subtle political satire woven into the story. When he focuses his craft on the killer's psyche, his characterization is chilling and memorable. A disturbingly graphic and yet refined listen, THE ARCHITECT builds anxiety on a blueprint of psychosis and violence. D.J.B. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 05/ JAN 06]
