When Alison Reynolds is ousted from a television job in Los Angeles, she heads to Sedona, Arizona, to investigate the death of her closest friend. The police believe the friend committed suicide by driving off a mountain road, but Alison thinks it was murder. Susanna Burney expertly conveys the many emotions of the central characters, particularly Alison's anger as she fights for the truth of her friend's death. Burney also conveys a sense of place; the listener is drawn into the red rock scenery of northern Arizona. Some of the male voices sound adolescent, but that's a minor quibble. The tempo is right, the emotional tones convincing. Listeners will be captured and held. R.E.K. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 06]
