Caitlin Greer's perky voice captures the character of 17-year-old Dice, the spunky narrator of Malkin's offbeat, sexually-charged tale of a dangerous connection between a human and a ghost. Dice communicates with the dead. She falls in love with a seventeenth-century spirit named Sinclair Youngblood Powers, who inhabits her cousin Penelope's body. Greer paces her narration to match the sassy Dice as she struggles to undo the botched exorcism that made Sinclair corporeal. Greer expresses Dice's frustration as she witnesses the irresistible Sinclair wreaking havoc of the sexual kind on the unsuspecting female residents of Swoon, Connecticut. Effortlessly, Greer differentiates between what Dice is thinking and what she is actually saying. Overall, Greer masterfully gives personality to male and female voices while keeping older listeners riveted to Dice's sometimes-dangerous erotic adventure.
