Kirsten Potter narrates a dark plot involving the brutal murder of an entire family, except for the eldest daughter, Roxy. Fast-talking, snarky detective D.D. Warren is on the case, and survivor turned vigilante Flora Dane assists despite D.D.'s protests. As they investigate the underfunded foster care system, both caregivers and social workers, Potter increases her pacing and finds a gentle but dispassionate tone for many passages. During the search for Roxy Baez, Potter's empathetic reading of Roxy's essays on the perfect family deepen the listener's emotional connection, demonstrating how pitch and cadence can enrich a story. Listeners will enjoy Potter's Boston accent, too. Filled with passion and suspense, this cleverly plotted mystery is heartbreaking and eye-opening. S.C.A.
