What Comes Next

John Katzenbach, read by William Roberts. Mysterious Press–HighBridge Audio Classics, unabridged, 13 CDs, 16.25 hrs., $39.95 ISBN 978-1-61-174790-4
Katzenbach’s latest thriller charts the efforts of retired college professor Adrian Thomas to solve a kidnapping he witnessed on the usually peaceful streets of his picturesque New England town. His journey leads him into a sinister world of unspeakable sexual exploitation, available for viewing via the Internet with just a few clicks of a mouse. William Roberts turns in an effective, nuanced performance in this audio edition. His evocative reading captures the horror of the dark basement in which Jennifer Riggins finds herself held hostage, and his rendition of Jennifer’s inner monologue is sincere and touching. Roberts also successfully navigates a potential minefield in his balanced portrayal of the convicted sex offender who uses his unsavory experiences and desires to help Adrian work the case and attempt to free Jennifer. And while Roberts occasionally fails to distinguish the book’s male characters during sections of dialogue, this is a minor flaw in an otherwise entertaining listen. A Mysterious Press hardcover.
