The 18-year-old murder of an unidentified young woman has never been solved by the Santa Teresa County Sheriff?s Department. Two of the original detectives, now elderly and ill, decide to try once more to identify the ?Jane Doe? and discover who killed her. Kinsey Millhone agrees to help, little knowing that the old murder will touch on her own past and put her life in danger. Lynn Lauber?s abridgment flows smoothly. It?s plot-driven, as all abridgments must be, but includes enough descriptive passages to enable listeners to imagine their favorite Kinsey Millhone settings. Within a few minutes of listening to Judy Kaye, a listener simply believes he or she is listening to Kinsey Millhone. True, the story?s first-person narration makes impersonation easier, but Kaye?s remarkable performance comes from understanding Kinsey?s character. The straightforward, shoot-from-the-hip attitude with a sense of humor and endearing humility is delivered in a gently raspy voice. Kaye likes Kinsey Millhone just as much as Grafton?s fans do. This is a listen you won?t want to end. A.C.S. 2003 Audie Award Finalist © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 02/ JAN 03]
