Walters plumbs the human psyche in gritty fashion, working language with a skill that few can equal. Her work is showcased remarkably in audio format, especially when the vocal instrument is Simon Prebble's. From the book's introductory scene of a woman's rape, mutilation and death to a later eerie imitation of the same brutality--Prebble gets it right. Leading us through tortuous routes of investigation with characterizations that are incomparable, he reveals each voice in the heat of the moment, along with all its underlying emotional subtext. There are many compelling (and repelling) characters here, and we become fully acquainted with them. S.B.S. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 00]
