"Four-year old Olivia's screams are rendered girlish and innocent as she runs from the living room where her father crouches over her mother's body, scissors running with blood. Detective Frank Brady, who speaks in a smoke-laden, gravelly voice, is determined to track down the murderer. Sandra Burr delivers the narration and story in a compelling style, leaving the listener anxious to hear what happens next. While deftly handling the many character changes, she builds the tension to a suspenseful, surprising conclusion. G.D.W. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
