Two weeks after his 18th birthday, everything changes for Evan Nash. When he injures his head after being run down on his bicycle, he begins having strange, harrowing visions whenever he tries to sleep. He turns to psychiatrist Shannon Mayer for help. Mayer has troubles of her own: her daughter has been kidnapped, and she's desperate for answers. Though she's at first skeptical of Evan's accounts, it quickly becomes clear that his mysterious ailment may be the key to finding her child.

What would have made Through the Fog better?

Characters that were more than shadows, something above a pre-teen level of dialog.

Would you ever listen to anything by Michael C. Grumley again?

Probably not.

Would you be willing to try another one of Amy McFadden’s performances?

Perhaps but not going to go look for one.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Through the Fog?

No comment as that would involve referencing elements of the story.

Meet Peter Brown, a young Manhattan emergency room doctor with an unusual past that is just about to catch up with him. His morning begins with the quick disarming of a would-be mugger, followed by a steamy elevator encounter with a sexy young pharmaceutical rep, topped off by a visit with a new patient - and from there Peter's day is going to get a whole lot worse and a whole lot weirder.

Excellent story. Fast paced, interesting characters and a nicely blended mix of two storylines, the past and present, to establish clearly where Peter came from and who he is. I always enjoy Robert Petkoff narrating and he does a great job with the story and voices. The only distraction are the few sound effects and music fade-ins which are just annoying.

While the writing is of normal Bond quality, the story is not much of a James Bond adventure. Bond is directly involved, and not at his best, for a very short time.
