"The wife of an Orthodox Jewish furrier disappears with their three children. He's sure foul play is involved. Using the Internet and a network of dedicated female investigators, Jewish-Irish PI Tess Monaghan, of Baltimore, tracks the fugitive family and uncovers a shockingly complex plot. Barbara Rosenblat's impressive vocal range and flawless accents breathe humanity into all the characters, even those only briefly met. Whether delivering the slightest hint of Baltimore in one character's speech patterns or the broader Russian accents of another, she does so with the artistry of the master voice actor she is. In her eighth Tess Monaghan mystery, award-winning author Laura Lippman offers a fas-cinating look at the world of Orthodox Judaism, as well as a chilling reminder of how deeply held resentments destroy lives. S.J.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine"
