"Ric Jerrom brings the hovering terror of Ruth Rendell's THE KILLING DOLL perfectly--almost too perfectly--to life. Not one of Rendell's comforting Inspector Wexford series, this is a story of the unexpected effect that "playing with magic" has on one English family and those around them. Jerrom gives the characters individual and gritty regional accents, which serve to emphasize the ordinariness of the people involved; they could be your slightly odd neighbors. In addition, he ends most sentences on a lifting note instead of a downbeat, inviting you--nay, trapping you--in the unfolding horror. Do not listen to this tape late at night in the dark . . . unless, of course, you like to be scared. A.C.S. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
