Jenna Lamia guides listeners through young freelance writer Ridley Jones's quest to uncover her biological parentage. Adopted from Project Rescue, an organization rumored to be linked to organized crime, Ridley discovers that her beloved Uncle Max is not her darling old uncle, but her father--and he's dangerous. Jenna Lamia's softly pitched, reedy voice solidly molds Ridley into a troubled heroine, but she paces the story with a speed that lacks the power to sustain itself and sometimes crashes at the end of sentences. Lamia's ability to paint minor characters, such as Ridley's boyfriends, is off the mark, with little to differentiate their voices from Ridley's. This is a good thriller, but it's difficult to follow. M.T.B. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 07]
