The sixth installment of Blaedel's crime series featuring Louise Rick finds the dogged Danish detective investigating a missing persons cold case and struggling with family issues at home. Christine Lakin's steady narration connects seemingly incongruous events surrounding the wealthy Sachs-Smith family's possession of "The Angel of Death," a religious icon with reputed power to forgive any transgression. Lakin's facility with the pronunciation of Danish locations and names keeps listeners anchored as events spiral out of control in this slow-burning psychological suspense. Scenes revealing the horrific proclivities of a mysterious person are jarring in contrast with the drama of sibling infighting and Rick's investigation. Lakin's measured performance keeps listeners invested in the outcome. J.R.T. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2018]
