Narrator Emily Sutton-Smith navigates the dual points of view of Ella and Alec in this tense thriller. Ella has a tragic past and synesthesia, a condition that allows her to see truth and lies in the auras surrounding most people. Alec is a notable exception. He has no visible aura, as Ella discovers when he turns up on her doorstep to say that her parents' accidental deaths were really murders. Sutton-Smith calibrates her tone to maintain the rapid pace of the complex plot and keep the listener on edge while waiting for the next twist. Ella's and Alec's similar interior monologues makes telling them apart difficult. In addition, Alec's dialogue is done in an exaggerated Southern drawl just toeing the line on being too much.
