Narrator James MacPherson excels with this story featuring multiple storylines and a large cast keeping many secrets. Listeners accompany Detective Chief Inspector Colin Anderson and Detective Inspector Winifred Costello to what looks like the murder of a woman dressed in a police uniform--there's even an eyewitness. However, they uncover two seemingly related tragedies involving youngsters. Evocative descriptions of a luxurious gated community and terrified or perplexed residents create a disturbing atmosphere. MacPherson excels with urgent whispered conversations, subtle humor, and an "invisible" woman who adds disquiet. Convincingly rendered insights into the personal lives of police, Costello's harsh self-criticism, and Anderson's changing priorities after the birth of his grandson who is diagnosed with Down syndrome, generate a compelling listening experience.
