Bringing the winner of the 1994 Edgar Award to life, Sandra Burr essays a sizable English cast: an impressive array of crazies, cockneys and coppers. When journalist Rosalind Leigh is commissioned to chronicle a high-profile murder, she's drawn into a web of intrigue. As the capable, committed heroine, Burr sounds carefully sweet, her voice somewhat high-pitched and childlike; as the cop-turned-restauranteur, Hal, Burr uses a gruff, somber tone. This deftly written tale offers a one-woman performance of convincing and compelling characters. One small matter is that Brilliance's signature music/voice-over combo, which is used to transition from side to side, detracts from dramatic tension.
