Mystery & Suspense • 7.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2001

Keating's detective novel revolves around a theory he posits: the most powerful determinant in human destiny is sexual attraction. That question is not only the central mystery in Detective Superintendent Harriet Marten's investigation into the murder of tennis star Bubbles Xingara, it also plagues the inspector herself as she finds herself unexpectedly drawn to one of her own subordinates. Although a topic with much promise, it soon becomes a tiresome refrain in Keating's work. Despite a veil of sophistication, Keating’s story doesn't rise much above the juvenile. Sheila Mitchell is a thoughtful and witty reader, but she cannot overcome such inert material. M.O. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB / MAR 03]
