Set mainly in Florida and radiating with magical nuances, Hoffman's story, basically a murder mystery with love subplots, requires a more evocative and careful reading. For a novel so crowded with characters and details, Sandra Burr's accelerated reading is destructive to both the mood and the meaning of the work. Burr's male voices sound strained. Also, almost all natural pauses have been eliminated. Better to read the novel oneself than to listen to this careless sprint through its pages. P.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN 93]
