Narrator Thérèse Plummer, who has been the voice for the Robin Lockwood series, masterfully draws listeners into the fifth installment. Plummer deftly differentiates characters, men and women, with appropriate emotional intensity. While listeners will appreciate her talented performance, they may find the plot dependent on several incidents that strain credulity. Portland defense attorney Lockwood takes on a case that leads to personal tragedy, resulting in her going back to her hometown, Elk Grove, to recover. Coincidently, Oregon police officer Marjorie Loman, whose husband has been murdered, flees to Elk Grove. The storylines cross when Lockwood defends Loman for kidnapping and abusing the baby for which she was a surrogate. Plummer deserves credit for keeping listeners engaged with the fast-paced but implausible plot. E.Q. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2022]
