Mystery & Suspense • 16 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1997

Tempe Brennan's life as Quebec's director of forensic anthropology takes a dangerous turn when she links a dismembered body with other similar murders and begins to track a serial killer. Rosenblat's voiced characterizations are wonderful. Both her French and Canadian accents are excellent; her timing and phrasing enhance the emotional impact and make palpable the story's fear and suspense. Unfortunately, irritating breathing and swallowing mar an otherwise superior performance. Lots of gruesome passages describing autopsies in meticulous technical detail call for a strong stomach. An abridgment would work well with this book since, in addition to the autopsy minutiae, there are many descriptive particulars that are not integral to the plot.
