"Two cases intertwine and hit home for FBI agent Pendergast who, in his own slightly misanthropic way, sets out to solve them. Rene Auberjonois makes this book what it is. No characters have remotely similar vocal qualities; all shineÑfrom a nasal-sounding lab researcher to various police officers and a foreign official. But itÕs Pendergast whom Auberjonois really embraces with a consistent narration. The characterÕs voice is methodical and controlled. At one point, while trying to get close to a source, Pendergast imitates an entirely different voice, and Auberjonois shifts smoothly between the agent's temporary identity and the source.
