Reviews

Review by Library Journal (1999-09-01)

Eve Duncan, the best forensic sculptor in the nation, is obsessed with identifying the remains of murdered children and returning them to their parents. Haunted by the murder of her own daughter, whose body was never recovered, she leads a reclusive life that revolves around her work. When billionaire computer guru John Logan lures her to work on an adult skull via a large contribution to a fund for lost children, Duncan doesn't realize the magnitude of what she's getting into.

Johansen's complex plot, with numerous twists and turns, keeps the listener guessing right up until the (somewhat dragged out) ending. Jill Hennessy is a capable reader, although in longer passages of dialog it does frequently become difficult to distinguish who is speaking. A few abrupt changes also mar the production, taking listeners out of the story until they realize that the scene has, indeed, changed. Still, this is a nonstop plot that will keep the cassettes flipping. For popular collections. Adrienne Furness, Lockport P.L., NY
