Mystery & Suspense • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Since being released from the Pinkertons, Sebastian Becker (THE KINGDOM OF BONES) serves as special investigator for the Masters of Lunacy. Becker determines the sanity of people of property who may not be competent to manage that property. Bethlehem (called Bedlam) Hospital has Becker evaluating Sir Owain Lancaster, who has returned from a deadly trip down the Amazon raving about monsters. Through scenes with Becker’s savant son, narrator Michael Page shows Becker to be a decent man with a clear grasp of the difference between insane and eccentric. Page ramps up the excitement when two children are found brutally murdered and Lancaster insists the evil has followed him. Page’s subtle handling of Stephen Gallagher’s character-driven plot keeps us guessing: Is Lancaster a madman or a monster? S.J.H.
