Susan Denaker’s sultry voice is a perfect match for Ross’s suspenseful mystery set in the bayous of Louisiana. Kate Delaney, a Chicago Homicide detective, travels south to investigate her twin sister’s death and teams up with bad-boy former cop Nick Broussard. Denaker ably contrasts Delaney’s by-the-book personality with Broussard’s laid-back Creole charm. Denaker’s occasionally slow, lazy delivery is a great foil for Ross’s casual, chatty prose and perfectly captures the various Big Easy characters. The chemistry between Delaney and Broussard is explosive as is the secret they uncover in the action-packed conclusion. Denaker’s diverse vocal range and warm, expressive voice make this a listening pleasure. S.C.A. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 07]
