Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Cassandra Campbell

Mystery & Suspense • 11.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Rarely will listeners find a dark contemporary fiction so exquisitely narrated that it becomes an instant classic. Cassandra Campbell portrays the story of two sisters, Dara and Marie, who continue the legacy of the Durant School of Dance, started by their mother. Approaching the annual performance of THE NUTCRACKER, the Durants hire a contractor, Derek, who becomes Marie's unhealthy obsession. But Dara is suspicious of him. Campbell vividly captures the paranoia, the world of ballet, and family secrets. She expertly portrays the skeptical Dara and the jovial and optimistic Marie. All this paired with gut-wrenching twists and reveals spirals into a perfect storm that listeners will relish. G.M.
