Ren Taylor has always seemed to have a special connection with ghosts and the past—ever since her brother died when she was 12. This talent is an asset in her career as an archaeologist but doesn’t help her connect with the here and now. The re-imagined existence of the prehistoric Mimbres people of the American Southwest has more life than the flesh-and-blood characters who are trying to piece together their story. Angela Brazil’s delivery is measured and slow paced, with characters that are lacking in any depth or nuance. Listeners may learn something about the prehistory of the Southwest, but the story of the contemporary people digging into that past is pretty lifeless.
