Listeners will appreciate the value of a skilled narrator through the slow opening half of this ultimately satisfying domestic thriller, the latest from the bestselling Swedish crime novelist. Faye has sacrificed her own career dreams to support Jack's business, and now that he's rich and successful and she's put on a few pounds, he's ready to dump her. For much of the novel Faye seems pathetic and clinging, but narrator Ann Richardson's intimate, empathetic voice assures us that eventually her protagonist will get hold of herself and work out her revenge. Intervening chapters set in Faye's childhood unfold a history that parallels her present dilemma--and point to the novel's ingenious conclusion. Richardson's expert narration brings out the best in this sexy, high-living suspense story. D.A.W. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2020]
