Narrator Linda Emond is terrific in the latest Temperance Brennan audiobook, and the characters remain compelling. While some listeners may find the plot of this North Carolina-based mystery predictable, it is entertaining. Brennan, a forensic anthropologist, has a sense of humor, and Emond captures it nicely. She also is able to perform both parts of the conversations between Brennan and her PTSD-afflicted daughter, Katy, reflecting their disparate emotions and voices. Her performance as Detective Erskine "Skinny" Slidell, a tough cop and Brennan antagonist, carries the right amount of crankiness. The story begins with a human eyeball having been delivered to Brennan's house, which is followed by copycat elements of earlier Brennan cases. The villain may not be a surprise, but Emond helps make this audiobook worthwhile. G.S. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2022]
