Using a variety of carefully selected and clearly differentiated voices, Sandra Burr delivers a fully realized performance of this excellent mystery. Burr uses a flat, nearly emotionless voice for the narrative, then brings out all the nuances of character and motivation in the dialogue. Her performance of the terrorized 10-year-old, for example, is heartbreaking in its combination of fear and pre-adolescent bravado. She takes a wide variety of accents, from Norwegian to Colombian, in stride without drawing attention to her artistry. The only music on the tape denotes the chapter changes, but with Burr's performance, no further ornamentation is needed. G.M.N. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 00]
