Narrator Roy McMillan sets a meticulous pace that develops a sense of foreboding from the start of this hair-raising tale from Robert Louis Stevenson. A group of friends are spending a comfortable evening together when one of them, Fettes, meets an old acquaintance that causes him to confess the sinister past that they shared. McMillan's dramatic performance is perfect for the tale's eerie tone, and he animates his characters with distinct voices, particularly Fettes, whose voice betrays a past full of sin and dissipation.
This is a story from the The Body Snatcher and Other Stories collection.
The Body Snatchers is one of Robert Louis Stevenson's most chilling tales. After many years, a chance encounter between two former medical students forces them to recall their sinister past and foul play that was better left buried. Perfect for long winter nights, these stories have been specially selected to create an atmosphere of fear and uncertainty. Read by Roy McMillan, with Naxos AudioBooks's trademark of carefully chosen music.
