When Ronnie and Alice were 11, they murdered a baby; they were convicted and incarcerated until they turned 18. Newly released, and replete with psychological problems, each is attempting to adjust to life outside juvenile detention--when children start to go missing. . . As the Baltimore Police, whom Laurence Bouvard portrays with heavy Brooklyn accents, seek the missing children, crime scenes are described in graphic detail. When the police turn their attention to Ronnie and Alice, the mystery surrounding the original murder and their roles in it takes the fore. Bouvard reads with a measured pace as Lippman delves into the psyches of the disturbed teens. However, Bouvard begins each sentence with a burst of sound, and the resulting uneven volume detracts from the story. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 04/ JAN 05]
