Duffy's debut is a mix of horror and mystery as a disturbed couple flees life in New York City for a safer place to raise their sons and heal their marriage. Narrator Allyson Ryan superbly portrays the female protagonist. Speaking as a voice from the past, she adds a haunting sound to the tension of the narrative. As the overall narrator, George Newbern has a much larger part, and for the most part he delivers a tension-packed reading. However, his voices at times get a bit muddled, missing a regional accent here and there and occasionally allowing secondary characters' voices to drift. The production also misses the mark from time to time with sentences that run together and other minor audio imperfections. M.C. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2015]
