Detective Eve Dallas has unfinished business from her past, which she is finally forced to face. She didn't expect that a cold-blooded killer she had put in jail a number of years ago would be on the prowl again or that she would prove to be the impetus for a personal crisis. Susan Ericksen is a skillful and nimble narrator who draws out the tension and intrigue of the plot. Her characterization of the cast is solid, especially her interpretation of Dallas's husband, an Irishman with a mottled past, whose thick brogue serves as a barometer of the intensity of the plot and the danger to Dallas. Ericksen makes good use of this trait without losing control or giving way to exaggeration. A few special effects are thrown in, but Ericksen has no need of them. J.E.M.
