Nance Williamson gives a warm, seductive performance in this combination murder/love story. Her husky voice, combined with excellent foreshadowing, leads the listener from sensual scenes to grim terror as Hallie O'Rourke escapes from her stepfather's killers. Excellent pacing and suspense build tension as killers pursue Hallie for critical information. A blinding snowstorm drives her to shelter at the Last Chance Café in Nevada, where she meets handsome rancher Chance Qualtrain. Chance, depicted with charm and style, is intrigued by Hallie's sensual beauty, though she exudes a sense of mystery and aloofness. Because the ending focuses on the love story, mystery aficionados may consider the story long and drawn out. G.D.W. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 02]
