Scott Brick brings his considerable expertise to his reading of Baldacci's latest crime novel featuring the team of Michelle Maxwell and Sean King, ex-Secret Service agents who first appeared in SPLIT SECOND. Their second outing takes place in Virginia and focuses on a dysfunctional Southern family, the Battles, and a series of murders made to look like famous killings of the past. Soft accents contrast with the brutality of the crimes, and though we are privy to the thoughts of the villain, we don't know who he/she is. The relationship between the partners is sensitively handled by Brick as is the portrayal of the Battles' vulnerable daughter. This production is a fine example of writer and reader working in tandem. J.B.G. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 05]
