by | Read by John Bedford Lloyd

Mystery & Suspense • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

John Bedford Lloyd's narrating accomplishments are already well recognized, and his deft handling of Michael Palmer's newest medical thriller is another successful performance. His straightforward delivery helps the listener navigate this novel's complexities of plot and character. Lloyd maintains a clear narrative voice that advances the story while creating a distinct persona for protagonist Nick Garrity. Lloyd also delivers medical procedures and moments of introspection as smoothly as he recounts high action. Some distractions occur as he portrays female characters and teenagers, but these instances are few in an overall enjoyable listen. M.O.B. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2010]
