Professional reviews

"Past and present are woven seamlessly in this thriller. Narrator Becky Ann Baker's versatile range carries the listener from Police Chief Jeffrey Tolliver's youth in Alabama to Dr. Sara Linton's life-altering rape in Atlanta to a murderous standoff in a small-town Georgia police station. When a young man from Tolliver's past (chillingly vocalized as cold and troubled) is determined to bring the chief down, divorced couple Tolliver and Linton must team up to prevent disaster. Baker's delightful characterizations of Tolliver's foul-mouthed mother, good-old-boy mentor, and longtime nemesis bring together the seeds of disaster sown years earlier. J.J.B.
