Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Jeff Gurner, Geneva Carr

Mystery & Suspense • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

This shimmering layered tale is too literary to be called gothic, though it has all the elements. Jeff Gurner narrates the story of Danny, who arrives at a castle in Eastern Europe to help his cousin turn it into a luxury hotel and finds that the place’s mysterious and bloody history is alive and at work, and so is a never forgotten episode of adolescent cruelty that estranged the cousins decades before. But wait--perhaps this whole tale is being made up by a convicted murderer named Ray in his prison writing course, where respect for powerful storytelling becomes a life-and-death matter. Can Egan balance this complex structure and also satisfy our longing for narrative resolution? Absolutely, and Gurner and Geneva Carr give flawless star turns. B.G.
