A woman named Gwen Lindstrom disappears from her marriage and life, leaving a faked scene suggesting foul play that puts her blameless husband, Matt, under suspicion of murder. Fourteen years later, Matt learns that Gwen, now Ardis, is living in Cyanide Wells, California, apparently a mother and apparently in a stable same-sex relationship. But guess what--all is not as it seems this time either. The female voices are read by Sandra Burr and the male ones by J. Charles. This is only fitfully successful, but whether because the actors aren't up to it or because the dialogue is unreadable is hard to tell. A mildly entertaining exercise, but never very believable, though the production is slick. B.G. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 03/JAN 04]
