Mystery & Suspense • 14 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Rosalyn Landor gives a measured, elegant performance of this ambitious first novel despite the fact it is possibly trying to do too many things at once. One protagonist is a lawyer named Lily with a thing for men with Asperger's (family secrets are involved). The other is Lily's malignant neighbor, Carla, whom we meet first as a devious child, then 15 years later as a devious bombshell. Lily also has an untrustworthy husband and a psychopathic stalker. Could this end well? Landor is brilliant with accents (Carla is Italian, plus there are all those UK regions and classes to render). Her pacing is polished and deliberate, which provides a sense of structure to an overstuffed plot that, nevertheless, has its pleasures. B.G. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2017]
