As if it weren't bad enough that Dr. Silvia Strange, the psychiatrist/ heroine of Lovett's latest mystery, has just given court testimony that has released a confessed rapist and murderer--now a mysterious villain known only as "Killer" is out to get her, as well. Lindsay Crouse's intense voice--although periodically lacking in tonal variation--lends itself naturally to Dr. Strange's adventures and musings. We hear her weariness as she slumps onto her couch with a well-deserved martini. We almost feel the blows as she's attacked after what was meant to be a relaxing shower. Violent and disturbingly plausible in its plot, ACQUIRED MOTIVES sweeps listeners into its dark puzzle. R.A.P. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB 97]
