Narrator Coleen Marlo captures the enigmatic personality of FBI Agent Bernadette Saint Claire with a subtle but authoritative voice as Saint Claire uses "second sight" to learn about recent murders along the Mississippi River. Marlo matches voice to mood, using hesitancy and understatement to depict her relationship with the agent in charge, Tony Garcia, who cautiously accepts his new alliance with Saint Claire but fears for his career because of her unorthodox skills. Marlo skillfully builds tension as Saint Claire handles victims' personal effects to see each death through the killer's eyes. With a vocal pace that matches the increasing intensity, she also experiences the victims' terror. The narration builds as the chase intensifies.
