In this dual narration, Steven Crossley delivers a third-person account of Detective Inspector Ray Stevens's campaign to find the hit-and-run killer of a little boy--despite his wife's growing resentment of his neglect of family, and despite obstruction by the brass who want to close the case and move on. Nicola Barber performs a first-person Jenna Gray, a young woman shattered by the crime. Crossley's delivery is precise but perhaps a little under-dramatized. Barber's is lovely and moving, with a very slight lisp in Jenna's diction that adds to your sense of her anguish and vulnerability. In her expertly plotted and rendered psychological puzzle, Mackintosh weaves together police procedural, family drama, and the anatomy of a murder. Deftly performed and pretty terrific.
