Paul Tremblay’s psychological thriller, The Pallbearers Club, gives its narrators the perfect opportunity to exercise their considerable dramatic skills. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Michele Cobb discuss this horror story that opens in 1980s New England. Graham Halstead portrays Art Barbara, founder of the Pallbearers Club, while his sultry friend Mercy is portrayed by Xe Sands. Mercy’s creepy penchant for taking photos of the dead in their caskets foreshadows possible vampirism to come. The narrators create a crescendo of horror, humor, and decadence.
