Comments for Watchlist

Watchlist: 08/29/12

 cover art (Link goes to Powells)Watchlist by Jeffery Deaveris and twenty-one other mystery authors brings together two serial thriller audio novellas: The Chopin Manuscript and The Copper Bracelet. Combined the two mysteries make a 13 disc (roughly 15 hours) set.

The Chopin Manuscript introduces a small core of characters amongst a huge ensemble of villains, heroes and victims. The heroes are Harry Middleton, his daughter Charley, Nora Tesla and a young Polish violin player. They are fighting for their lives as a Chopin manuscript appears to have a coded recipe for a weapon of mass destruction. The Copper Bracelet brings these four back together with a new ensemble. This time there's something afoot in Kashmir that could start the next world war and throw the United States into chaos.

The first novella, being the one that tried out the concept of an exquisite corpse audio serial is much rougher than its sequel. To put it bluntly, it's a hokey thriller. It was a fun diversion while driving around town, but I'm not sure I'd have the patience for it if I were giving it my full attention!

Four stars
