Ozzie Campbell, who murdered Jacobia "Jake" Tiptree's mother, is about to be tried 35 years after she witnessed the crime at the age of 3. But Campbell has disappeared, and, with a meticulously designed plan, he intends to prevent Jake's Witness Impact Statement from being used in the trial. The usual complement of house repairs inserted between the excitement of kidnapping, murder, and an incredible escape provide for an engaging mystery. Lindsay Ellison handles the multitude of voices for both the Maine and New York characters with ease and gives the descriptive passages the attention they deserve. She wisely doesn't overdo the suspense, and she injects the humorous dialogue with a dry wit. S.S.R. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2009]
