QUICKSAND

by | Read by Jennifer Van Dyck

Mystery & Suspense • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Iris Johansen's twelfth novel featuring forensic sculptor Eve Duncan provides heavy doses of action and emotion mixed with a light dash of the paranormal as a serial child-killer pulls Eve into his grip, hinting that he will lead her to the remains of her young daughter, murdered a decade earlier. Jennifer Van Dyck maintains the necessary ferocity to bring the novel to life. Her rendering of Johansen's dialogue is perfectly paced and effectively differentiates the characters, although two male characters are interpreted awkwardly. Luis Montalvo sounds more like Bela Lugosi than a Colombian arms dealer, and his playful henchman, Miguel Vicente, comes across cartoonish. These two characters aside, Van Dyck's reading is smooth, euphonic, and emotionally powerful. S.E.S. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2008]
