Marc Cashman uses his extensive experience narrating nonfiction to great effect in this sci-fi retelling of Stanley’s search for Livingston. It all begins when a ratings-hungry reporter lures a jaded adventurer out of retirement to lead the search for a reclusive medical researcher on the backwater planet of Bushveld. The story starts out sounding like an Edgar Rice Burroughs adventure novel but quickly takes on the moral ambiguity of Joseph Conrad’s HEART OF DARKNESS. Cashman dispassionately recounts the search leader’s abusive drive, which threatens the lives of the safari crew, leaving the listener to decide what price is too high for a chance to save another planet’s civilization.
