Rindell's poignant psychological suspense chills with its plausibility. Narrator Gretchen Mol is well matched to the story of New York City police stenographer Rose Baker, which takes place during 1920s Prohibition. Mol lulls the listener with Rose's old-fashioned, prudish air and subtly provides contrast with the appearance of Odalie, the new typist, who has a glamorous manner and luxurious lifestyle. Mol easily shifts her voice to dramatize the differences between the two women as they move through speakeasies and other areas of crime. The mystery of Odalie's origins and devious intentions, along with Rose's ensuing obsession, is carried seamlessly to the story's conclusion.
