Kate Burton brings genuine suspense to this thriller/sci-fi hybrid. She vocalizes arson investigator Kerry Murphy clearly and evokes touching emotion as Kerry relives a childhood fire and endures the amazing, yet painful, ability her injuries created. As Kerry tracks a psychopathic arsonist, she encounters a diverse cast of characters--including an English butler, a Southern senator, and a North Korean operative--who showcase Burton's range of vocalizations. She creates a delicious taste of irony by depicting the killer in tones as sweet as cotton candy. As the chase moves to the finish, Burton narrates so feverishly as to cause the listener to check for goose bumps. J.J.B. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 04]
