HOTHOUSE ORCHID

by | Read by Carrington MacDuffie

Mystery & Suspense • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

CIA Special Agent Holly Baker has been ordered to take a vacation, so off she goes to her house in Orchid Beach, Florida, where she immediately becomes involved in a case of serial rape and murder. Carrington MacDuffie delivers a good performance—Holly's voice is appropriately light, and the masculine voices are excellent. However, the glib, mundane dialogue combined with narrative that is neither exciting nor dramatic is hard for even MacDuffie to overcome. There’s little in this book that grabs the listener, despite an interesting plot idea. Those who have read Woods's earlier books will be especially disappointed.
