Jan Maxwell reads Clark's first-person narration in an easy, authoritative style, building drama and tension appropriately. Investigative reporter Ellie Cavanaugh was 7 when her 15-year-old sister was murdered and her family destroyed. Totally convinced of rich sociopath Rob Westerfield's guilt, Ellie is researching a book on Rob's life to prove it conclusively. While exploring the criminal mind, Ellie also learns more about her family. Maxwell depicts Ellie as self-confident and assertive, using compelling, rapid speech patterns to emphasize horrifying discoveries in Rob's past and Ellie's fear as her life is repeatedly threatened. Maxwell and Clark work well together, producing a nail-biting page-turner. S.C.A. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 02]
