by | Read by William Peter Blatty

Mystery & Suspense • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

With his latest novel, Blatty proves not only that he still can write compelling prose nearly 40 years after his acclaimed EXORCIST but also that he makes a fine narrator. His deep, raspy voice provides a nice “jagged edge” for this psychological thriller, which delicately interweaves a string of events that eventually come together—from a man being tortured by the Albanian government in the 1970s to a growing number of deaths at a Hadassah hospital in Jerusalem that is filled with people of diverse ethnic and cultural identities. Blatty uses pauses to stretch out the more chilling moments of the narrative. While his female character voices aren't entirely believable, they don’t distract the listener from the story.
