Mystery & Suspense • 12.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

It's surprising how easy it is to get drawn into the primeval world depicted in FRAGMENT. Narrator Robin Downes guides listeners to a desert island in the most desolate part of the Pacific. It's a place where a whole new form of evolution has developed, and where only the strongest survive. Downes’s tone alternates between scientific detachment and child-like awe as he paints a picture of a lost world that should not exist. Truly imaginative and bizarre animals stalk the island, and all are built to survive by killing. From the tiny "disc ants" to the enormous "spigers” (spider-tigers), everything is engineered to kill. Or is it? Scientists battle the island and their own government to find a way to preserve what they’ve found. M.S. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2009]
