"Susan Ericksen's concise, well-paced narration blends beautifully with Spindler's grim, empathetic vision of post-Katrina New Orleans in this romantic thriller. The plot twists and turns are replete with numerous red herrings. Ericksen ratchets up the intensity when Patti becomes the prey of The Artist, an obsessive serial killer, and the plot rockets ahead. Voices of individual characters are easily identified as Ericksen uses volume, accents, and tones to provide uniqueness. She imparts real life and energy to the story and easily evokes the speech patterns of the region. The devastated city, fascinating characters, and complex plotting really jell, thanks to Ericksen's vivacious reading. S.C.A. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
