Narrator William DeMeritt is the perfect match for Ben H. Winters’s compelling audiobook, The Quiet Boy, a mix of legal thriller and family drama with a touch of sci-fi. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Michele Cobb talk about this story of a surgery gone wrong, and the ensuing courtroom drama from two trials told over alternating timelines. One details the family’s attempts to sue the hospital over the failed surgery—the other has the father on trial for possibly murdering a key witness. DeMeritt has a compelling voice that draws listeners into the story, and he expertly captures the cast of characters and all their traits: quirky, dark, passionate, and desperate. Listeners will think about this fast-paced and twisted story long after finishing it.
