Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by David Timson

Mystery & Suspense • 23 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

David Timson is superb in this lengthy melodramatic mystery, reminiscent of Poe’s WILLIAM WILSON. As he recounts narrator Edward Glyver’s confession, Timson’s voice is as shadowy as the dimly lit rooms the players inhabit and as rich and sumptuous as their overwrought Victorian surroundings. Glyver, whose every move is colored by revenge, murders a random victim one night, just to see if he can kill. His true target is his archenemy, Phoebus Daunt, a prominent, popular poet with little talent and fewer scruples. Timson’s myriad voices range from puny to plummy, from saintly to shady, each providing a perfect rendering of the character described. As Glyver’s tempestuous, obsessive journey leads him through erudition, erotica, opulence, and opium dens, Timson is the listener’s perfect guide. S.J.H.
