Pacing a little on the slow side and dubious vocal characterization of a central character are the only liabilities of an otherwise engaging performance of Gerritsen's latest thriller by Susan Denaker. Her voice for Medical Examiner Maura Isles is feminine and strong, demonstrating that these facets need not be diametrically opposed. Her voice for Homicide Detective Jane Rizzoli, however, is just strong and is performed with Boston accent that is too broad. Fair or unfair, this characterization makes her sound brusque and unattractive, causing listeners to question her dashing husband's romantic devotion. Otherwise, Denaker capably voices the many other characters populating this involving story of forced prostitution, murder, and governmental cover-up.
