Mystery & Suspense • 12.2 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1988

This is a fluffy book about a young reporter for a supermarket tabloid who learns how to lie like a pro. Narrator Nicki Van Gieson has a good time with the text. Her voice is smoky, deep, full-bodied, and open to the characters. However, Van Gieson doesn't read a full sentence without chopping it into incomprehensible parts. Thus,"Sarah went to the door only to find it locked" becomes "Sarah went to the door. Only to find it. Locked." Throughout Van Gieson trades impeccable diction for inappropriate phrasing. Twelve hours of this is exceedingly annoying. R.I.G. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 02]
