Mystery & Suspense • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2003

Medical Examiner Maura Isles is called to a cloistered abbey, where a young novice has been murdered and an elderly nun attacked and left for dead. Jane Rizzoli, the homicide detective on the case, has personal issues that are making her life miserable. The discovery that the beautiful young murder victim had secretly given birth turns the investigation to finding the infant and the identity of the father. Anna Fields's deeply resonant voice makes the graphic details easier to take. Her perfect pacing and the voices she creates for Isles and Rizzoli add depth to Gerritsen's well-drawn characters. The only quibble with Fields's performance is that dialogue delivered by male characters sometimes sounds contrived and artificial. D.T.H.
