JUST ONE LOOK

JUST ONE LOOK

Harlan Coben
Read by Carrington MacDuffie

After the mysterious appearance of a twenty-year-old photograph in her Photomat packet and her husband's middle-of-the-night disappearance, Grace Lawson's seemingly perfect suburban life undergoes a seismic shift. Who are the people in the snapshot? Why did her husband deny being one of them? As she searches for answers, more questions arise, involving police, private investigators, neighbors, and mobsters. Narrator Carrington MacDuffie keeps the pacing sharp. Her accents are true, her vocal control impressive. As Grace realizes her marriage has been built on lies, MacDuffie's tone grows appropriately paranoid. Her characterization of Eric Wu, a reptilian hit man with martial art expertise, is chilling. The combination of Harlan Coben's intricate plotting and crisp, understated writing and Carrington MacDuffie's smart, lively performance guarantees listeners that no nail will be left unbitten.
