In a vicious attack, criminals tore her infant from Milla's arms and stabbed her in the back. Ten years later, she has forsaken all else to search for her son and other missing children. Speaking mostly from Milla's point of view, Joyce Bean captures the loneliness, as well as the passion, now governing the protagonist's life. Bean drops her voice slightly to convey male dialogue but not so far as to create caricature. When speaking in the voice of a half-Mexican tracker, Bean offers just a hint of an accent, which perfectly delivers both the character's foreignness and education. And when performing the several steamy sex scenes, the huskiness of Bean's voice speaks more than the written words. R.P.L. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 04]
