What happens when enigmatic FBI Agent Aloysius Pendergast meets the anti-Buddha? Pendergast and his ward, Constance, travel to the remote Gsalrig Chongg monastery in Tibet for meditation and martial arts. There they learn that a relic holding the power to wipe out humankind has been stolen. The world faces physical and metaphysical peril, and Pendergast must do battle with this ancient ominous force. In a coolly understated performance, Ren Auberjonois subtly heightens the ever-increasing tension as Constance and Pendergast board the luxury liner BRITTANIA on its maiden voyage, searching for the madman bent on world destruction. Auberjonoiss deceptively ordinary voice pulls listeners into Preston and Childs world, where science, mysticism, and melodrama reign supreme. Lots of fun! S.J.H.
