Kramer easily creates the persona of the novel's narrator, Felix Castor. Castor is a practicing exorcist in London, where he is able to see the ghosts of a small number of British dead. Kramer, using a mild nasal tone with emphasis on vowels, plays Castor with a light British accent that establishes the character's humor, first demonstrated at a party. The exorcist and the dead are each credible, no small feat for Kramer as he wends a smooth path over the thickets of Carey's overlong plot. If his voice is less successful for the female characters and for some of the weird characters Castor must encounter, Kramer is still quite capable. Simultaneous release with the Grand Central hardcover (Reviews, June 4).
