Michael Kimball's work has received international acclaim from critics and authors including Stephen King, who says Kimball writes "the sort of book you think about during the day and can't wait to settle back into at night." In Mouth to Mouth, Kimball spins a terrifying tale of retribution, set in an idyllic, sheep-dotted countryside. As Ellen Chambers' marriage falls apart, her nephew Neil walks back into her life. Instead of the boy she knew 12 years ago, he is now a handsome young man. Soon, he has offered to rebuild her barn in exchange for lodging. But his offer of help and friendship is part of a larger plan that will leave a trail of deception and murder in its wake. As the barn takes shape, Ellen watches her life and her world change under the spell of forces she no longer knows how to name or control. Narrator George Guidall's performance highlights the mounting suspense in this gripping page-turner that will haunt you long after the last sentence.

"Long-lost relative Neil Chambers returns to Maine in time for his cousin's wedding. Surprised at his arrival, the Chambers family has no idea of the horrifying surprises Neil has in store for them. George Guidall performs with subtlety and an understated creepiness that has the listener's skin crawling from the first tape. His characterizations are insightful and flawless, taking the story beyond the text. Without artifice, he conveys the underlying kindness of a shady loan collector. The story's wronged husband doesn't quite ring true, but we find out exactly why in the end. Drug pushers, law enforcement, and the members of the Chambers family come to life. Best of all, Guidall performs without a trace of a Maine accent--a choice that adds to, rather than detracts, from the production. R.P.L. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine"
