Rick Holmes and Kate Baldwin deliver excellent performances in this touching audio. Police chief James Novick is called in to investigate the disappearance of bad-boy Dan Swansea from his high school reunion. At the same time, Val Adaler arrives on her old friend Addie’s doorstep. There’s a longstanding rift between the two of them, but now Val needs help. SHE knows what happened to Swansea, a former boyfriend who done her wrong—she ran him over. As voiced by Holmes, Novick comes across as sweet, funny, and a little sad. Baldwin is endearing as the mousy, overweight Addie and dramatic as her friend Val, who once betrayed her. The mending of their relationship, as well as the romance between Addie and Novick, is tenderly recounted by the two narrators. D.G. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2009]
