Audible Editor Reviews

Author, Mark Sinnett, uses a unique tactic of volleying the narrative between Ray Townes and his wife, Mary, to spell out an emotional tale of disaster. Performed by veteran narrator Nick Hahn, with a gentle baritone timbre, The Carnivore retells of the time Hurricane Hazel ripped through Toronto, in the middle of October in 1954. Ray was remembered all over town for his heroic efforts that night. As Ray and Mary are forced to look back on what happened that fateful night, however, a small flicker of doubt that has been whipping around inside Mary is finally realized and it’s a truth that might destroy both of them.

Publisher's Summary

When Hurricane Hazel tore through Toronto on October 15, 1954, it left its mark on both the city and its inhabitants. In the aftermath, a young cop named Ray Townes emerges as a hero - numerous accounts detail the way he battled the raging Humber River to save those trapped in their homes - and his story is featured prominently in the newspapers, thrusting him into the spotlight as a local celebrity. Meanwhile, his wife Mary is wrestling with doubts about her husband’s heroism.

While performing her own miracles the night of the storm as a nurse at a mud-filled, overcrowded emergency room, Mary met a woman - disoriented and near death - with a disturbingly peculiar recollection of events. While Mary tries to shake her suspicions about Ray as they rebuild their life in the shell-shocked city, she can't help but wonder about her husband and that fateful night.

When a reporter comes knocking 50 years later to revisit that horrendous night, the truth begins to surface and threatens to destroy them.
