Inside Job, by Connie Willis (author), Dennis Boutsikaris (narrator)

Audible Frontiers, April 2008

Rob's a professional debunker, publisher of a skeptic/debunker magazine. At the insistence of his too-good-to-be-true, beautiful, former actress assistant, Kildy, he attends a performance of a hot new channeler. It's all very normal and boring, with the alleged spirit, Isus, spouting typical "insights" and advice--until a different booms out from the psychic "channeling" him. This voice is different, skeptical, belittling--and oddly familiar.

Is Ariaunna channeling H.L. Mencken?

Or is this a new trick or scam? And if so--whose?

This is a neat little story, with Willis in very good form. The plotting and character development, and attention to detail, are all excellent and entertaining.

Recommended.

I borrowed this book from a friend.
