Dagmara Dominczyk's sad, whispery voice and slow pace give authenticity to Nina Reilly's first murder investigation. Dominczyk portrays a multiplicity of believable characters—lawyers involved in a medical malpractice suit, disappearing witnesses, and Nina’s future love, Detective Paul van Wagoner. Dominczyk captures all the stresses of Nina’s life: being a single parent of a pre-school son, her ongoing fight for exclusive custody, and her care of her mother, who is recovering from a botched medical procedure. Somehow Nina finds time to prove that the woman who fell to her death from the bridge near Big Sir was murdered, not accidentally killed as the police insist. Narration is well done, but the plot is difficult to follow. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2009]
