Mystery & Suspense • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Scottoline challenges us to consider what mothers risk for their children and how that commitment trumps all else. Maggi-Meg Reed wraps the listener tightly into the suspense and emotional tangle with a powerful performance. In fact, the high emotional drama literally sweeps you up like a whirlwind. Jill Farrow, a successful pediatrician dedicated to her young patients and to her blended family, is naturally concerned for her stepdaughters when her ex-husband dies unexpectedly but is unprepared for the danger of trying to understand what happened. Reed propels the story with drive and energy, and a near frenzy of emotional turmoil. She astutely projects the near-hysteria of sudden loss, the cold rage of rejection, and the angst of teenage uncertainty. Listeners believe each emotion, and root for Jill to survive and come out whole on the other side. R.F.W. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2012]
