Narrator Ben Onwukwe's satiny bass voice is perfect for this dense and erudite sci-fi thriller. In a near-future dystopia, the System watches and records every movement, thought, and memory of every citizen. This policing structure works perfectly until a mysterious artist suspected of a crime dies in custody. When the investigators delve into the woman's stored memories, they find a half-dozen personalities ranging from an elite Greek financier to an Ethiopian painter and a Carthaginian concubine. Relentless and mesmerizing, Onwukwe excels at giving voice to the many characters and especially shines at delivering the subtle humor, irony, and shifting moods that drive this novel to a mind-bending conclusion.
