"With its focus on the world of competitive rowing, Deborah Crombie presents the fourteenth in her Duncan Kincaid/Gemma James series. The day after a solo training session in her high-tech scull, CID officer and Olympics hopeful Rebecca Meredith is found dead by search-and- rescue canines. Jennie Sterlin's lovely voice delivers the moody ambiance of the river, the deeply felt connection between the dogs and their trainers, and the seething rivalries between rowers. Sterlin finds just the right sound for each character, never resorting to stereotypical voices. As Crombie develops the domestic end of the Kincaid/James relationship, the plotting becomes more intricate, the suspects more plentiful, and the suspense more compelling. Sterlin, always wonderful, adds just the right touches to this satisfying mystery. S.J.H. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
