"In a vivid dream, Olivia Bechet "sees" a gruesome crime--a woman is tortured and left alive to burn in a fire. When Olivia goes to the police, they treat her with poorly masked disdain. . . until a body is found, exactly as she described it. Jackson's sequel to HOT BLOODED is full of graphic details of religious martyrdom, erotic violence, and psychosexual sadism. Detective Rick Bentz is back. This time, Bentz's daughter, Kristi, is on the killer's list. If Jackson's story strains credibility, Alyssa Bresnahan's performance commands attention. She is chilling as the sociopath and compelling as the peripheral characters. Bresnahan's voice becomes raspy, breathless, or disturbingly menacing as needed. The bodies pile up, and the tension builds to a smashing climax, complete with killer dogs, whips, and chains. S.J.H. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine"
