This twisted tale of murder is designed to intrigue and confuse as Brown spins her unusual mystery. Duncan Hatcher investigates the murder of a nighttime intruder by the wife of Judge Laird. At the same time, Hatcher is after a drug lord who has been released by Laird. When Elise, the judge's wife, then seduces Hatcher, Dennis Boutsikaris's smooth tones turn up the heat. Boutsikaris narrates with the skill of a veteran, never missing a twist in this seamless abridgment. The women's voices are seductive yet steely; the men's voices alternate between stern and gullible. Elise's lies and subsequent disappearance at a second murder scene leave Duncan questioning who wants whom dead. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 07]
