Mystery & Suspense • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

Julia Hamill finds an old skull buried in the garden of her newly acquired Boston home. A forensic anthropologist determines that it belongs to a murder victim, circa 1800. The story flashes back to 1830, when a killer known as the West End Reaper is terrorizing the area. Susan Denaker narrates with skill and animation even when the predictable, coincidence-prone story lose immediacy. She provides expert voices for Rose Connolly, a poor Irish seamstress; Norris Marshall, a medical student forced by poverty to assist an immoral "resurrectionist" (a grave robber supplying cadavers for medical study); and Henry Page, an 89-year-old archivist helping Julia. Denaker's performance makes listening worthwhile, although fans won't find many thrills in Gerritsen's latest. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 08]
