This combination of author and narrator results in a remarkable listening experience. Price’s audiobook, with its titular allusion to MOBY-DICK, uses a crime story as a framework for exploring themes of family, love, and forgiveness. The superbly written text enables Ari Fliakos to bring to life a plethora of voices with an accompanying range of emotions. Whether it’s the gut-wrenching funeral, the attempts of the protagonist’s wife to maintain a semblance of normalcy when the family is under attack, or the main character’s anguish over his father’s dementia, Fliakos meticulously delivers each voice with full, rich characterizations. It’s no surprise that he continues to win awards for his narrations. M.L.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2015]
