What is the truth about recently orphaned Joey Wilkenson’s strange behavior and the increasing number of gruesomely butchered bodies turning up in Sugarloaf, Idaho? The listener who appreciates a leisurely developed work of psychological terror will be rewarded by John Saul’s methodical tightening of the thumbscrew. David Regal’s serious reading captures the somber mood needed for a work that is less menacing in print. Regal’s vocal changes are very good for this mixture of ages and sexes, and one of his characters is unintentionally hilarious. Technically, the recording level is superior, and the cover of the cassette case is much more enticing than the book jacket. E.E.L. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: APR 94]
