Annabelle Granger spent her childhood on the run without ever knowing why. Years later, when six bodies are discovered on the grounds of an abandoned mental institution, a silver locket identifies one of the victims as . . . Annabelle Granger. A plot as intricately crafted as this one deserves a natural unfolding of events and motives. Unfortunately, in this abridgment there are too many passages of explication. The upside is a superior performance by Maggi-Meg Reed. Reed is expert at revealing every nuance and subtlety of character and plot. She makes the tense moments riveting. A smart director, an excellent story, and a winning performance almost make up for a clunky abridgment. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 07]
