Mystery & Suspense • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1998

In 1946, violence erupted in remote Tranquility, Maine, and it returns fifty years later in a story that is as modern as today's headlines. Maxwell uses good vocal inflections but includes an unlikely Southern accent for one minor character. Compelling music heightens the urgency of early dramatic moments yet is not continued throughout the recording. Although the tale seems complete in this abridgment, the story moves dizzily between scenes, among characters and across time. Gerritsen is at her suspenseful best in this offering, and Maxwell is a skillful navigator. B.L.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 99]
