Narrator Jan Maxwell's theatrical background comes to the fore as she portrays Emily, a criminal defense attorney pursued by an obsessed stalker. The story is further complicated by serial murders a hundred years apart. Clear enunciation, whether with accents or gender changes, makes each character believable and appropriate. Male detectives with smoke-laden voices sound professional as they dig up the crime scene in Emily's backyard. News reporters are depicted as annoying, demanding, and authoritative. Emily is rendered in crisp, businesslike tones with an undercurrent of soft femininity. Clark is known as the queen of suspense, but Maxwell also rules in the reader's role.
