There's nothing like a Scots accent to give a sense of place, and Jane MacFarlane pulls listeners immediately into Glasgow's murder squad. Detective Alex Morrow catches the particularly grisly and puzzling murder of a young woman who is not what she seems, and the case leads to the unfolding of numerous secrets and surprises. MacFarlane plays the dark suspense with just the right amount of psychological tension. She allows the characters from different classes to unfold. Listeners also glimpse the author's skill at eliciting sympathy for villains. The dialogue is smart, sharp, and clear despite the strong accents, and MacFarlane's pace suits perfectly. Listeners are left pondering the complexity of justice and the tragedy of damaged families. R.F.W © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2011]
