Publisher's Summary

Two student anatomists purchase the remains of humanity in the small hours of the morning. The shadowy men who bring the bodies seldom speak, and the suspicions of the students are never spoken aloud. Until one morning,when the drapery is lifted from the face of a new acquisition, and one student recognizes it as the face of a dear friend, alive and well only yesterday.

Great storytelling! Nice performance.

The narrator missed or changed a few words, some voices seemed a bit unnatural to me, but overall excellent.
