Pete Cross uses an arch tone and deliberate pacing to deliver this dark satire of contemporary life. Office drone Melvin Levin's existence is flat as a pancake until he receives an anonymous and seemingly unmotivated death threat in the mail. The threat breaks the spell of his drone life and pushes him into a frenzy of paranoia and frustration, but for the first time in a long time he feels truly alive. What did he do to deserve this? Cross's portrayal of the telephone voice of the potential killer adds a dark tone reminiscent of CATCH-22 and A CONFEDERACY OF DUNCES. For fans of outrageous, biting social commentary wrapped in a white-hot slapstick package. R.O. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2024]
