From the first word, this rich recording envelops the listener. Both the production quality and the performance are superb. W. Morgan Sheppard's narration is a vehicle of otherworldly transport that truly takes the listener far far away. Sheppard's voice embodies the haunting aspects of this dark tale. Jacob Grimm, of the Brothers Grimm, is a ghost seeking redemption. Through guiding and protecting Jeremy, a boy whose odd talent is hearing the dead, he hopes to find his way beyond the in-between. First, he must prevent the dark whispered threat that shrouds Jeremy’s life from coming to fruition. Sheppard's tone conveys Jacob's tenderness toward his charge—whether he’s consoling, chiding, or urging Jeremy not to let the spirited Ginger lure him into certain trouble. A.M.P.
