Mystery & Suspense • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1980

When the body of a beautiful coed is found hanging, apparently raped, and grotesquely drawn-and-quartered in the Pathology Museum of St. Benjamin's Medical School, ex-pathologist John Eisenmenger, attorney Helena Flemming, and erstwhile policeman Bob Johnson begin a semi-authorized private investigation. Narrator Sean Barrett is remarkable as the multitude of students, professors, husbands, and wives who come under the police microscope as possible suspects. Barrett's reading style is truthful and understated. As each new character is introduced, his/her personality is immediately identifiable by Barrett's slight hesitations, vocal twitches, and breathing rhythms, altered just slightly to fit. While longer pauses between scenes would help listeners orient themselves to the new sets of characters and circumstances, overall, this is a compelling novel performed by a master narrator.
