Narrator John Rubinstein's timing is spot-on as psychologist Dr. Alex Delaware and LAPD Homicide Detective Milo Sturgis exchange theories and banter in Kellerman's latest psychological thriller. Eight years ago two teenagers, Troy Turner and Rand Duchay, confessed to the murder of a 2-year-old girl and were sent to a camp for juvenile offenders. Troy was murdered there, and now Rand is being released. He calls Alex, claiming to have information about the case, but is killed before Alex can reach him. As Kellerman's plot burrows deep into the horrors of the past, Rubinstein's performance handles the horrific brutality and revelations with masterful detachment, while still drawing listeners into the grisly details. Shameful secrets, unthinkable violence, a riveting conclusion, and Rubinstein's reading make for sensational listening. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 05]
