A murderer escapes from an asylum for the criminally insane with only one thought in mind: to locate the woman whose testimony convicted him. Law officers, a professional tracker, and the woman's husband are all on his trail. The reader's fine skill in varying voice tone is necessary since almost all the characters are men. The book depends on abrupt shifts of point of view to carry the narrative along. Although the character voices are confusing initially, they're more comprehensible as the listener becomes familiar with the protagonists. Heald's talent builds tension, provides excitement and adds to the unexpected twist at the conclusion. D.M.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: MAR 95]
