The author, once known for romance novels, has effectively made the switch to a thriller with more than a touch of sex and romance. The murder of an identical twin leads to the revelation of a plot by a cult leader to repopulate the world with his offspring. Because the twins had switched identities before the murder, the listener is often led to wonder which twin really died. Jan Maxwell's voice is pleasant, almost winsome, and professional. But she has trouble switching from female to male characters. This sometimes causes the listener to confuse characters. Nonetheless, Maxwell handles action scenes with exciting emphasis and romantic interludes with seductive deliberateness. A.L.H. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 01]
