Here's one of those special novels in which the narrator and author are clearly in sync. Todd Fielding, a newlywed who has just moved to Brindle, Oregon, quickly discovers that there are dark secrets enveloping the community. Anna Fields's reading is an ideal complement to the book. Fields has a strong, sometimes deep voice that meshes well with the story, especially during the scenes in which Fielding searches for the murderer who has taken the lives of many young girls. When narrating other books, Fields's voice has at times seemed too deep or not deep enough for key characters. But in this one, her style fits, resulting in a captivating performance.
