Eight years earlier, ex-CIA operative Grace Archer narrowly escaped death at the hands of Marvot, and went into hiding. Now she's been found and must rely on mercenary Jake Kilmer to keep her and her daughter, Frankie, alive. Jennifer Van Dyck's warm, throaty voice has an intangible quality that draws in the listener. Her interpretation of Grace is rich with myriad emotions, but her terse, staccato delivery of Jake's dialogue and thoughts is evocative, as well. Van Dyck has fun with the accents of the supporting characters, giving a silky menace to the evil Marvot. It's a memorable counterpoint to Frankie's bubbly innocence. The only sour note is the music, which seems pedestrian. C.E.W. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 06]
