Marketing consultant Lake Warren faces a custody battle with her ex and a fight for her life when a client shows signs of criminal intent. Aimee Jolson presents this thriller in a matter-of-fact tone that manages to convey Lake’s mind-boggling naïveté and poor judgment while at the same time capturing her colleagues’ solicitousness, scorn, and sagacity in turn. Jolson’s calm has the effect of removing the narrator from the story in the reader’s ear, allowing the plot and characters to carry themselves. Aural texture appears throughout the novel in the form of a delightfully light Irish accent from a nurse and slightly grating Brooklyn twang from a former client. These add the perfect spice to an already flavorful performance. R.L.L. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2010]
