Mystery & Suspense • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Fellow cops consider Detective Sloane Pearson a dumb blonde—even though she keeps up with the guys with her investigative skills and vulgar street talk. When she transfers from Homicide to work Chicago's Sex Crimes Division, her reputation for breaking hard-to-crack cases is tested by a brutal rapist who forces his victims to fight back as he rapes and strangles them. Tavia Gilbert's serious tone and deliberate pace add to escalating tensions when Sloan learns her friend is the rapist’s latest victim. Gilbert’s portrayal of Sloan's outrage and defiance when she's ordered to drop the case sounds fully authentic. But, otherwise, her characterization of Sloan’s professionalism creates a distance that makes the detective difficult to empathize with.
