Mystery & Suspense • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2003

Is it possible that author Jance watched the darkly humorous movie FARGO before writing this? For we have a noble female sheriff with a sweetly supportive husband, small-town murders, and a tangled plot. But unlike FARGO, there is little humor. In its place we find self-righteousness and a made-for-television ending, delivered in fine fashion by reader Debra Monk. It's no fault of Monk's--as any good actor does, she makes the most of the material at hand and brings it to life. Her characterizations are strong and confident, as if she is unaware of the weak underpinnings of the story. D.J.B.
