Rendell's sociopath proves to be neither the centerpiece of this mystery nor of Ric Jerrom's narration. Nonetheless, Jerrom's portrayal of Rendell's narcissistic killer is indeed chilling, but the greater challenge--and his best portrait--is that of prim Rosemary, who stumbles from complacency into her own murderous state as the seemingly rock-solid footing of her life pitches unexpectedly. Ostensibly, the mystery is that of sixty-year-old double murder. But the greater questions are posed by senior citizens who wonder: "How did I come to this point in my life, and is this how it continues until the (no longer distant) end?" Jerrom's thoughtful narration gets us convincingly inside their minds. K.W. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2014]
