Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by C.J. Critt

Mystery & Suspense • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1995

In a creepy, deja vu way, listening to Under the Beetle's Cellar is like hearing the actual news coverage of David Koresh and the Branch Davidians. There are many characters with police, media types and ordinary citizens in the majority. Critt does a masterful job with a huge amount of rapid-fire or emotional dialogue. It would be impossible not to, occasionally, blend characters, but she keeps everyone distinct. Much of the story is text, which flows at a pace appropriate to the story's action. The physical and psychological remoteness of the fanatic Mordecai and his victim, makes audio the perfect vehicle for this novel. Just about everyone should find Under the Beetle's Cellar captivating. S.G.B. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN 97]
