Psychiatrist Mark Angelotti knows that genes don't lie. Or do they? Back at work after a devastating illness, Mark believes he has put his past behind him when he is asked to examine Charlie Dickerson, a mentally handicapped teenager whose wealthy mother insists he is a victim of sexual abuse. Mark diagnoses a different reason for Charlie's ills, but his prescription turns deadly when a teacher is murdered and Charlie confesses to the police. Volunteering to testify on Charlie's behalf, Mark's worst fears are realized when paternity tests show the victim was pregnant with Charlie's child. Now it's up to Mark to prove Charlie's innocence in a case where nothing is as first meets the eye.

"Narrator Stefan Rudnicki's basso profondo range is marvelous for conveying darkness, and there is plenty of it here. For starters, the protagonist, psychiatrist Mark Angelotti, has recently gone almost stone blind, so he must maneuver among sighted enemies as he grapples with a murder snarl that more than one blackhearted person doesn't want untangled. It doesn't help that nearly every person in this story except the developmentally delayed child falsely accused of the crime is on a scale from unpleasant to appalling. Oddly, Rudnicki has been more effective elsewhere. He fails to give the innocent boy a convincing voice, and while his pacing of this gothic plot is compelling, you still hate all the other characters. Possibly another narrator could have improved the situation. Or not. B.G. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
