"A dark, gut-wrenching thriller....A superb, disturbing read." (Booklist)
I read this ten years ago in print and recently on audio. The audio version was abridged. I will not say the abridgment gutted the story because I enjoyed it, but I could surely sense some gaps. This is, so far, Lashner's best and Audible should have the unabridged version available.
Victor Carl's style as a lawyer is fascinating and funny. Many great quips.
Howard has a really good masculine smooth voice. No harshness.
