SHIFT Gate of Orpheus Trilogy, Book 1

by | Read by Robert Forster

Mystery & Suspense • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

In this alternate history, author Tim Kring takes one of the most pivotal moments in American history, the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, and weaves in a backdrop of clandestine LSD and mind-control experiments. The danger of a book like SHIFT is taking the real events so far from reality that they no longer seem plausible. Kring, creator of TV’s “Heroes,” manages that balancing act nicely. Narrator Robert Forster pulls the whole story together with a tough, slightly New Yorkish accent. He keeps up the frantic pace, helping listeners track a large cast of characters, many of whom have code names. His commanding performance makes this audiobook impossible to turn off.
